The Great War

Illustration of soldiers rushing into battle

The Great War profoundly changed not just the geo-political landcape of Europe, and an entire generation, but also the culture, economics, politics, and technology of countries outside the immediate combatants. To commemorate the United States' entry into World War I in April 1917, we present selections from our collections related to aviation and military history as well as politics, comics and fine art from that period.
