Synopsis

The Great War (1914-1918), later known as the First World War, brought together the major European countries and their empires into the world's greatest conflict so far seen. Over 70 million people worldwide were mobilised into military service with 10 million of these service personnel killed in action and a further 7 million civilians also killed. This total death toll made up 1 per cent of the world's population at the time.



The war occurred at the heyday of the postcard as a social media. This book looks at the role of the postcard in the war, both as a propaganda tool by the authorities and also as a communication means between friends and family split apart by the war. The once valued postcards holding the image of a loved one now often only show an anonymous fighter with no details of who they were or what their outcome was, while the censored scenes of trenches and battlefields hide the true horrors of the fighting and the scenes witnessed.

Nigel Sadler's interest in the Caribbean started when he was appointed as Director of the Turks and Caicos National Museum in 2000. He held this position until January 2007 when he set up his company, Sands of Time Consultancy (http://www.sandsoftimeconsultancy.com), and returned to the UK to work on several exhibitions to commemorate the bi centenary of the abolition of the British Slave Trade. Nigel has carried out extensive research on slavery, which has led to several academic and popular publications. To aid its projects Sands of Time Consultancy has been developing an image archive and this publication will mostly contain images from this collection of which the company already holds around 130 suitable images.
