Lutz Sauerteig compares the policies of the different armies to venereal disease, showing how greater liberalization of sexual matters was largely confined to men such as pointing out that while the British Army was extremely reluctant to combat prostitution at the front, at home soldiers' wives might be deprived of separation allowances if found guilty of adultery.
