"The Great War from its earliest days was a struggle of competing cultural ideas and values: these provided an important impetus for combatting the enemy. In France, a long history dating back to the Revolution of illustrated books and journals that commented on public events provided an abundant and rich representation of the War. Images ran the gamut from journalistic depiction of events to highly stylized depictions that emphasized a subjective and often personal response on the part of the artist."
"The purpose of this archive is to bring to the attention of students of the Great War a series of thematically organized images not easily available outside of research libraries. Each of the themes unites a series of images that can be enlarged and commented upon in threads that we hope will encourage the exchange of information and ideas."
