Humor and entertainment were vital to the war effort during World War I. While entertainment provided relief to soldiers in the trenches, it also built up support for the war effort on the home front. Recreational activities or artistic creation served as tools of diversion, triggering national pride and hope, among the countries of the Entente or the Allied powers. This book looks at transnational war culture by examining seemingly light-hearted discourses on the Great War.
