Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book World War I and Propaganda. The book demonstrates the myriad of ways that propaganda was employed to serve the war effort. The book is divided into four sections that highlight the different kinds of negotiations that were involved in the propaganda efforts. The first section highlights some of the various approaches to propaganda employed within Great Britain and its empire as well as some of the obstacles that arose in the face of competing needs with limited manpower. The second section explores how propaganda tried to define and depict conduct, both civilian and military, during the war as well as the competing desires and expectations that were in play. The third section examines various forms of propaganda in occupied lands, and the last section discusses neutral nations.
