Less than a year after the Armistice, a reviewer for the New York Times wrote, “It is to be expected--and hoped--that the war was the most profound experience which our generation is to see; and it will be impossible to keep it out of serious literature that is written by this generation.” Many Villagers participated in the war effort, however this tag is reserved for those who served in the military or ambulance corps of any country during the First World War (1914-1918).

Paul Thompson's poster "Fighting in France!," ca. 1917-18
Door signer Paul Thompson excelled in capturing crowd scenes on film, as in this instance of New Yorkers gathered to listen to a rousing speech by the city's mayor. This is one of several World War I photographic propaganda posters based upon his work.
