World War One

               World War One Film Clips

1914 Eton cOLLEGE

Grim Determination on the German Home Front (Literary Digest, 1916)

This report, filed from Switzerland, stood in stark contrast to hundreds of other articles previously published by the Allied presses that reported how regretful the Germans were for having provoked war and how economic privations were making them even more-so. This unnamed journalist insisted that the German home front that he saw in 1916 was composed of a proud and determined people who were fully prepared to see the war through to a German victory.


It was a Second Rate War (The American Mercury, 1924)

"In the conflict which some still persist in calling the Great War, though it was great only in size, there was so much jumble and muddle and half-hearted experiment and so little visible military skill and ingenuity that a far-seeing and keen-thinking British colonel has declared that if the nations of the earth will only use their brains, the inevitable next war will show combat so transformed and reformed that the struggle of 1914 - 1918 will seem, by comparison, little more than a clash 'between barbaric hordes...'"

''Merry Christmas, Major X'' (Der Welt Spiegel, 1914)

Published a few months after the war began, this German short story was written about a particular front line rifle company and the contempt that they shared for one of their officers. It's a good read.


Napoleon Takes Charge (Literary Digest, 1922)

The "Napoleon" who plays the Monday-morning-quarterback in these columns was created by the tireless researcher Walter Noble Burns (1872 – 1932); his version of Bonaparte explains what went wrong on the Western Front and how he would have beat the Kaiser - but not before he dishes out liberal amounts of defamation for the senior commands on both sides of No Man's Land.

"The war's stupendous blunders and stupendous, useless tragedies made me turn over in my sarcophagus beneath the dome of the Invalides. I can not conceive how military men of even mediocre intelligence could have permitted the Allied Army to waste its time by idly lobbing over shells during a three-years' insanity of deadlocked trench warfare."

Relief Agency Structures on U.S. Army Camp Grounds (Architectural Record, 1918)

Illustrated with as many as twelve pictures, this article from Architectural Record


How the YMCA Got it Wrong (The Home Sector, 1919)

There were many benevolent organizations that volunteered to go abroad and cheer up the American military personnel serving in W.W. I Europe; groups such as the Jewish Welfare Board, the Knights of Columbus, the War Camp Community Service and the Salvation Army - to name just a few, but the Y.M.C.A. (Young Men's Christian Association) was the only one among them that irked the Doughboys. In this 1919 exposé former STARS and STRIPES reporter Alexander Woollcott (1887 - 1943) levels numerous charges against the Y, believing that they had misrepresented their intentions when they asked the War Department to grant them passage. Woolcott maintains that their primary mission was proselytizing rather than relief work.
