First World War Photographers
by Jane Carmichael
Publisher's Description
In this volume, Jane Carmichael, keeper of the First World War photography collection at the Imperial War Museum in London, has collected a remarkable range of over 100 photographs from the museum's archives.

She focuses on the growing use of the photograph as a medium for the masses and as a historical document. The book gathers together a stunning collection of visual images from the conflict, underscoring the operations of propaganda and journalism, and enhancing our appreciation of the photographic documents of the war.
