Book Description:

Redressing the neglect of World War I memorials in art history scholarship, this volume shows why sculptures of doughboys (US soldiers during World War I) were in such demand during the 1920s, and how their functions and meanings have evolved. Jennifer Wingate recovers and interprets the circumstances of the doughboy sculptures' creation, and offers a new perspective on the complex culture of interwar America and on present-day commemorative practices.
