During WWI, how did the image of war presented in posters differ from soldiers' actual experiences?
In WWI, people used propaganda to get support and persuade people. Many of the images don't capture the true experience. The images have bright colors, strong men, and women to draw men to war. Some propaganda shows the Red Cross and weapons for strength and power. However, in the real battle there are sicknesses, terrible temperatures, rats, bugs, little food, trench foot, and harsh living condition. The men in the trenches have to bend down the whole time surrounded by dead people and animals. They have to be fast and quick because gas could come and sweep them up. Some of the wounded people are so horrific that human mind couldn't imagine. Illness spreads quickly since everyone is so close to one another and living in such horrible conditions. For example, people get trench foot because of standing in the water and mud all day and night. They don't have extra shoes or clothing. Furthermore, materials are very low and make it difficult for a man to survive. Propaganda and posters do not describe the real thing.
