In the wake of the destruction wrought during World War I, many thought that such a ruinous conflict would be impossible in the future. This exhibit documents wartime experiences through multiple lenses, from highly individual memoirs to impersonal analyses of tactics. The Noel Collection’s books on the topic will be complemented by artifacts provided by the R.W. Norton Art Gallery.
