First World War in Film

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.
