Summary "As the Army marks the centennial of World War I, it is important to examine the art and material culture of the Army from that period. The Army Museum Enterprise's collection includes a wide range of art and artifacts related to World War I. Because the treasures are located at over fifty museums across the United States and not every artifact is on display, The Great War: U.S. Army Art and The Great War: U.S. Army Artifacts offer access to content that is not always readily accessible. By studying this collection, we can see the ways in which the Army rapidly reinvented itself during World War I and how it adapted during a period of innovation that changed the future trajectory of warfare. Through the analysis of artifacts attributed to individual World War I soldiers, we honor their legacy of service and the sacrifices they made."--Provided by publisher.
