Synopsis

`Though a lover of peace, Mr Punch from his earliest days has not been unfamiliar with war.' First published in 1919, Mr Punch's History of the Great War is a month-by-month account of World War I through the eyes of Mr Punch, a satirist without mercy and a British institution. Copiously illustrated in the style for which he has become famous, and by a pen dipped in vitriol, this is a history with a difference: unashamedly subjective, it spares no-one Punch thinks worthy of ridicule. Yet it never loses sight of the horrors of war in general or of the Great War in particular, and illustrations such as the lone soldier standing with rifle reversed in honour of the death of Lord Kitchener are moving in their simplicity and humanity. Funny, affecting and informative, Mr Punch's History of the Great War is an unusual perspective on one of the most significant periods in modern European history.
