Decoding the Front - Communication 1914-1918 (Paperback)

Karen Derycke


The entry of the Dominions and the colonies into WWI produced a mixture of languages and cultures and communication thus became an international concept. The publication 'Decoding the Front' draws the attention to the wide range of possibilities that the word 'Communication' covers.Around the turn of the century, modern means of communication were not well-developed but the First World War and technological progress soon changed this. Photography and film, letters,postcards and many ways of communication at the front are discussed such as radio, telephone and telegraph. But also animals such as homing pigeons,horses and dogs were still indispensable in the vast communication network; communication in the First World War was often a strange contradiction between primitive and modern technologies.
