Wit as Weapon: Satire and the Great War features pieces from The Wolfsonian–FIU Library, which document the satyrical techniques used during the war. In that period, satire was used by propaganda artists to glorify the cause of the nation or, on the contrary, to mock enemies, attempting to raise the crowd’s mood. The satyrical contents were addressed both to adults and children and spread through different media such as magazine and sheet music covers, postcards, and children’s books.
