In this lesson, students will be introduced to some of the ways in which advertisers used World War I to sell their products. Students will examine how these materials present a positive picture of the war. The class will also look at some of the materials produced for or by the troops themselves as amusements and propaganda.
The aim of this lesson is to introduce the role and contribution of the Indian forces on the Western Front. Students should recognise that the Indian forces made their contribution despite on-going prejudice and racism from British society.
