This week marks the centennial of the outbreak of the First World War. Numerous new books and articles are remembering the war and its terrible destruction. I was recently conducting research in France and was impressed by the crowded window displays dedicated to la guerre de 1914-1918 at bookstores across the country.
As part of the WWI commemoration in the United States, a newspaper article in the Wall Street Journal takes a look back at portrayals of the First World War in film.
See the Wall Street Journal for this article.
Northern Illinois University students in HIST 390 History and Film: War in Film will be interested in this piece.
