The poppy has been the enduring symbol of World War I since the years of the war itself, and it now embodies a century of ever-changing attitudes towards the world’s first global war. But the Great War didn’t represent the poppy’s first association with combat—long before 1914, it was seen as an emblem of war, both its heroism and its futility.

Poppyganda uncovers the history of the poppy and its relationship to warfare, showing how it has been used by various factions over the centuries to both justify and condemn war, and how it continues to be a potent symbol today, one that plays a part, both rueful and celebratory, in nearly every commemoration of World War I.

About the Author:

Matthew Leonard is a modern conflict archaeologist at the University of Bristol.

Review:

"Over the past century, British society has embraced the poppy as a symbol for remembering the First World War. In Poppyganda, Leonard reveals how such an object came to represent the contested memories of the conflict and its evolution as a part of material culture up to the present. With its vivid prose and excellent photographs and illustrations, Poppyganda should be of interest to the scholar and casual reader alike." (Journal of Military History)

"An object to behold, filled with excellent quality photographs and images arranged artistically around the text. Poppyganda is a truly thought-provoking read." (Centenary News)
