The extraordinary phenomenon of the war postcard – reflections of the full range of responses to the most murderous and ghastly of all wars. The chapters herein include: story postcards, military subjects, heroism and agony, religious themes, humour, animal and field postcards – even those embroidered with silk and very beautiful still today. Even propaganda is represented. Almost three hundred post cards are reproduced – individual historic documents of a bygone age. Photos in colour and black and white.
