More than any war before it, photography and film played decisive roles in the media and governmental presentation of World War I. This highly visual history explores how a relatively new technology was used for a variety of propaganda purposes, and views the results from the public perspective. Throughout, reproductions of archival postcards, illustrated newspaper and magazine articles, photo albums, commemorative images, and amateur photographs from all sides of the conflict reveal how battlefields were staged for media images, and how their publication was further manipulated for effect.
