Samenvatting

Paper War offers a rare opportunity to understand the dynamics of propaganda. A timeless tale of the flexible and immediate use of information in one battle, on a single day - Cassino, Italy, May 11, 1944.
Through leaflets that he collected that day, a British soldier who was serving as a liaison officer in the Indian army recounts the Nazi's skillful but ultimately unsuccessful campaign to win the battle through showering the enemy with paper, as well as bombs.
The images in the propaganda pieces from that day are varied, vivid, and arresting. The soldier tells the story of how the Nazis misidentified the Allied troops, firing a total of 14 different leaflets in a succession of four languages: English, Polish, Urdu and Hindi. Very different messages accompanied by different pictures were used to appeal to - and terrify - each intended audience, and they are all reproduced here at full size, with complete translations.
The book contains an introduction by Randall L. Bytwerk, an acknowledged expert and author on the propaganda of Nazi Germany, and will appeal to anyone interested in military history, propaganda, and communication arts & design.
