Cover: Another Call "More Men and Still More Until the Enemy is Crushed" Lord Kitchener, 1914. Hill, Siffken, and Co., London, U.K. Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. LC-USZC4-10883.

This lithograph issued by Britain's Parliamentary Recruiting Committee is among the Library of Congress collection, World War I Posters, available at http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/wwipos/. Implicitly acknowledging massive loss of life on multiple fronts, numerous colorful, emotional, and even cartoonish posters urged people to continue fueling war with "Men, Munitions, and Money."

In the aftermath of World War I, survivors mourning the millions of deaths turned to more stark representations of war, such as the Edwin Luytens memorials analyzed by David A. Johnson and Nicole F. Gilbertson in "Commemorations of Imperial Sacrifice at Home and Abroad: British Memorials of the Great War,"which begins on page 563 of this issue.
