    Abstract

    This essay forms part of 'Ludic Geopolitics: children's play, war toys and re-enchantment with the British military', a project funded by the UK's Economic and Social Research Council. It examines how children make sense of war and conflict through their play with military action figures. The project is a collaboration between researchers at the University of Portsmouth, University of Exeter, and Royal Holloway, University of London, with the Museum of Childhood as a project partner.
