The extraordinary events of August, September, and October 1914 offer crucial insights into the interconnections between battle front and home front. The horror of the fighting itself was unknown to the belligerent publics, but the mediated (or euphemized) version of battle front events exercised its own influence on the dynamics of war, governance, culture, and society. In this sense, the first months of the Western Front give us a look into the formation of both home and battle fronts. It cannot be surprising that home and battlefield would influence, constrain, and shape each other.
