Abstract:
The book focuses on the previously unexplored area of modern military wall art, ranging from First and Second World War servicemen's work, to prisoner of war camp murals, through to graffiti of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. It presents in visual form the diversity and significance of modern military wall art, largely in Britain, but set within its wider geographical and historical context. The colour illustrations are accompanied by five essays that together describe the historical and wider context of military wall art, their form, meaning and significance, as well as the conservation dilemmas they present. The authors define `war art' in its broadest sense; examples of wall art are mostly World War II and post-World War II, with Cold War examples highlighting the cultural differences between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, and within NATO between British and American service traditions, and between military operations and the protest movement.
