Welcome to Weird War One, a catalogue of the weird, the wonderful and the downright eccentric, from deep within IWM's First World War archives. From bizarre propaganda posters to eccentric spies, from pigeon parachutes to the ventriloquist's dummy that saved his master's life, from tickle sticks to fly swats, this is proof that, as ever, the truth is stranger than fiction.

"History isn't all dates and declarations. Weird War One compiles eccentric materials that reveal another side of the Great War. Among the objects: an army ration biscuit that was so hard someone turned it into a Christmas card and a "Man-Carrying Kite" that promised to allow its user to survey the battlefield from the air."--Wall Street Journal
