Falsehood In Wartime (World War 1)
Jul 10, Michael Miller rated it really liked it Shelves: Governments continue to pull out the same old propaganda techniques every time they need to convince their citizens falsegood involvement in the war is necessary. Atrocity stories, especially ones involving infants or children, are an old standby.
Reading this book has convinced me to take all such stories with a large measure of salt — they’re usually lies. Why do citizens in democratic countries continue to fall for them every time? When war is declared, Truth is the first casualty.
In every major conflict that happened in the past or now and in the future it’s clear that governments involved directly or remotely in any conflict will use falsehood against the population.
The psychological factor in war is just as important as the military factor, this is what this book documents and clarify clearly of all major events that happened during WWI. After nearly a century of this bloody war I was surprised how a lot of event were fal When war is declared, Truth is the first casualty. After nearly a century of this bloody ponsomby I was surprised how a lot of event were falsified even that a lot I didn’t know the truth behind them till I read this book.
The thing that made me read this book is because of the current Syrian conflict however the falsehood used in this conflict is in another league, maybe this is what falssehood call now “media war”, the old fashioned ways that were used in WWI are nothing compared to now and who knows what is fapsehood unknown.
Sep 27, AskHistorians added it Shelves: A hugely influential volume ponsonvy what Ponsonby believed to be the pernicious efforts of various actors both state-based and otherwise to trick the public into the war. Ponsonby was a socialist and pacifist, and had what is to my mind a somewhat extravagant view of the public’s peace-loving innocence.

In any event, the book is a seriously important one, as it helped cement not entirely correctly the idea among the public that tales of German atrocity France and Belgium were wholly invent A hugely influential volume outlining what Ponsonby believed to be the pernicious efforts of various actors both state-based and otherwise to trick the public into the war. In any event, the book is a seriously important one, as it helped cement not entirely correctly the idea among the public that tales of German atrocity France and Belgium were wholly invented, thus helping to inoculate them against similar claims focusing on the Nazis in the s and onwards — an unfortunate consequence indeed.

I was disturbed to find within this work a vigorous apology for wide-scale lying by national leaders to their own citizenry. The author showed such a disregard for ethics that he, at several points, seems disappointed that the people, when informed of their duping, are upset.
