(Redirected to Media of World War I article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

World War I has inspired great novels, drama and poetry. During the war itself, it has been estimated that thousands of poems were written every day by combatants and their relatives. This article consists primarily of lists.

During the war many of the combatants published trench magazines, most of them for an audience in a particular division or unit. The most famous of these (and the only one still commercially available after the war) was the Wipers Times.

After the war, many participants published their memoirs and diaries. A common subject for fiction in the 1920s and 1930s was the effect of the war, including shell-shock and the huge social changes caused by the war.

From the latter half of the 20th century onwards, the First World War continued to be a popular subject for fiction, mainly novels.
