Which of the following describes what came to be known as the “Lost Generation” in British history?
A. the sudden drop in the civilian population due to air raids and countrywide bombing
B. the deaths of many young children during the battle of great britian in the world war II
C. the deaths of young soliders who might have become skilled professionals had they survived
D. the men and women who came of age immediately following the end of world war I
Answer C: The term “Lost Generation” in British history was coined to refer to the demise of young soldiers who may have been skilled professionals had they survived WWI. It was a famous phrase because the soldiers who died were of the upper-class. As such, their deaths were considered disproportionate since they robbed the nation of its future elite.
