Individuals expressed their own political views and preferences. During World War II, every major military power had propaganda offices that employed political cartoons to influence public opinion.

Using images from a wide variety of international wartime magazines, newspapers, books, postcards, posters and prints Mark Bryant tells the history of World War I from both sides of the conflict in an immediate and refreshing manner that brings history alive. The book contains more than 300 cartoons and caricatures, in color and black and white, many of which are published here in book form for the first time.

The cartoon has a special place in the history of World War II, and the power of its message was felt by all sides of the conflict. Acclaimed cartoon historian Dr Mark Bryant has amassed a marvellous collection of images in colour and black and white, some famous, others not so - from, amongst others, British, French, American, Italian, German, Soviet and Japanese sources - which now appear in paperback form for the first time. Timed to co-incide with the 75th anniversary of the start of WWII.

During the London Blitz the British upper lip was kept resolutely stiff by the antics of Strube's little man growing marrows and the redfaced indignity of Low's Colonel Blimp. With a strong background in television and radio, he first served the club as the "voice of the Bombers. He currently handles team media relations and sales in addition to acting as the team's archivist and historian.

In an age before TV and radio the impact and importance of cartoon art was immense, especially when the only sources of information were silent cinema newsreels, posters, newspapers and books – all largely black and white. The cartoon had an immediacy and universal accessibility, giving a message words could not convey. So, not surprisingly, the Great War proved an extraordinarily fertile time for cartoonists. When Zeppelins blackened the sky and U-boats challenged the Royal Navy’s supremacy at sea, it was Heath Robinson’s crazy cartoons and the antics of Bairnsfather’s immortal ‘Old Bill’ that kept the British upper lip resolutely stiff. And who could take Kasier Bill, the Red Baron and all the mighty Prussians at all seriously when H.M. Bateman and Bert Thomas cocked a snook at all they held dear and the pages of Punch, Bystander, London Opinion, Le Rire, Le Canard Enchaîné and such US journals as Puck, Judge and Life kept everyone amused? But not all the cartoons were lighthearted. Indeed, the vicious drawings of Louis Raemakers were powerful enough to call Holland’s neutrality into question and hard-hitting cartoons by such committed artists as Dyson, the American Art Young and David Low caused considerable embarrassment to their respective governments. The Central Powers also had a wealth of talent laboring to counteract the Allies’ propaganda machine and prewar satirical journals such as Kladderadatsch, Simplicissimus and Jugend rose to the challenge, producing some of the best work by such enduring artists as Johnson, Gulbransson and Grosz amongst others. Following on from the success of Grub Street’s World War II in Cartoons, also by Mark Bryant, this book examines cartoons from both sides of the conflict, both in color and black-and-white, and skillfully blends them with text to produce this unique and significant visual history of the First World War.
