PUNCH CARTOONS OF THE GREAT WAR - 119 Great War cartoons published in Punch - Various - ebook
Opis

Herein are 119 satirical cartoons published in Punch between 1890 and 1915 which focus on the growing threat of war in the years preceding and during the first two years of the GREAT WAR. The cartoons are grouped into the following categories: The Days Preceding the War The Struggle Uncle Sam The Comedies of the Great Tragedy Women and Children First The New Rake's Progress—Unser Kaiser The Raider The Unspeakable Turk Italia! The cartoons encompass all the Allied nations and most of those aligned with the Central Powers. The sea war also features the antics of both navies and of course the sinking of non-military liners. During the war the media swung into action in effect becoming an Allied propaganda machine. In addition to Punch, Dutchman Louis Raemakers was also proactive in this media. Raemakers cartoons were so effective that he and his family had to flee the Netherlands when the German High Command offered a reward for his capture. Working in London he continued to publish his cartoons mainly in The Times and even went on a promotional tour of the USA. It was thought that his many works, which can be seen in the eBooks Raemakers Cartoons of WWI – vols. 1 & 2, was partly instrumental in changing the opinion of the American public towards involvement in the “European” war. The effect of these cartoons on rallying public opinion before and during the Great War was incalculable and the propaganda machine continued to play a major role in the conflicts following the Great War. ============ KEYWORDS/TAGS: Punch, Cartoons, Published, Louis Raemakers, , Admiral, Allies, Australia, Austria, BELGIUM, BELIEVE, Berlin, BLOCKADE, Boer, Botha, Britain, British, Brusilov, Bull, CALAIS, Camel, Canada, Captain, Chorus, Christian, Dame, dangerous, Delville Wood,, EAGLE, Eagle, Eastern, Emperor, ENEMY, Europa, Europe, FAIR, FOUL, FRONT, Gallipoli, General, German, German Headquarters, GOD, Grand, GREAT WAR, HATE, Holland, HONOUR, Hood, Imperial, India, Inter-Parliamentary, JACK-IN-THE-BOX, John, Kaiser Wilhelm, KING, Marne, Messines, New Zealand, Officer, Order, PARIS, Passchendaele, Photographer, Pilot, Prince, RAIDER, Red, Riding, RUSSIA, South Africa, South West Africa, Spring Offensive, STOP, Sultan, The Somme, Tipperary, Tirpitz, TRIUMPH, Turk, Turkey, Uncle Sam, United States of America, USA, Verdun, Western Front, WILLIAM, WOMEN, WWI, Ypres, Propaganda, media, newspaper, magazine

THE DAYS PRECEDING THE WAR

A WISE WARNING

Dædalus Bismarck (Political Parent of Wilhelm Icarus).

"My son, observe the middle path to fly, And fear to sink too low, or rise too high. Here the sun melts, there vapours damp your force, Between the two extremes direct your course. "Nor on the bear, nor on boötes gaze, Nor on sword-arm'd orion's dangerous rays: But follow me, thy guide, with watchful sight, And, as I steer, direct thy cautious Flight."

Ovid, "Metamorphoses," Book VIII., Fable III.

October 6, 1888.

THE HAUNTED SHIP

(Twenty-five years after "Dropping the Pilot.")

Ghost of the Old Pilot. "I Wonder if He Would Drop Me NOW!"

(April 1st is the hundredth anniversary of Bismarck's birth.)

March 31, 1915.

L'ENFANT TERRIBLE

Chorus in the Stern. "Don't Go On Like That—or You'll Upset Us All!!"

May 10, 1890.

THE IMPERIAL JACK-IN-THE-BOX

Chorus (Everybody). " Everything in Order Everywhere! O! What a Surprise! Sold Again!"

January 20, 1893.

THE MODERN ALEXANDER'S FEAST; OR, THE POWER OF SOUND

"With ravished ears, The Monarch hears, Assumes the God, Affects to nod, And seems to shake the spheres!"

March 5, 1892.

THE STORY OF FIDGETY WILHELM(Up-to-date version of "Struwwelpeter.")

"Let me see if Wilhelm can Be a little gentleman; Let me see if he is able To sit still for once at table!"

"But fidgety Will

He won't sit still."

Just like any bucking horse.
