During the commemorations for the centenial of the Battle of Cambrai, this exhibit will show how officials were communicating about the conflict and were giving news to the population.
This propaganda was including all aspects of the daily life for those who were staying far from the front line, from newspapers to children toys, including labels on consuming products.
Part of the exhibition will be dedicated to the way french artists, commissioned by the Army Museum between 1914 and 1918, as the regional painter Lucien Jonas, or artists paid by the Armies and sent to the fire, have manipulated the public opinion in France.
A comparison with the propaganda from British allies will allow to find out commun points and divergences between the official methods of communication.
