“Humor, Entertainment, and Popular Culture During World War I,” co-edited by Clémentine Tholas and Karen A. Ritzenhoff

“This is a thoroughly enjoyable book offering insight and interest for cultural historians of the Great War the world over. Refreshingly, it deals with a number of topics otherwise overlooked in relation to the conflict, and offers contributions from a mixture of new and established academics.”  –(Pip Gregory, Reviews in History, history.ac.uk, April, 2016)

“Humor and entertainment were vital to the war effort during World War I. While entertainment provided relief to soldiers in the trenches, it also built up support for the war effort on the home front. This book looks at transnational war culture by examining seemingly light-hearted discourses on the Great War.”  –The Publisher
