The Daily Mail and WW1

Tue, 23 May 2017 19:12:00 +1200

"The Paper that Foretold the War": The Daily Mail and the First World War It's one of the most successful newspapers in the world - if you count success as being the number of newspapers you sell - and if you're in the business of making money out of newspapers, the ability to sell them is pretty important. I'm talking about the The Daily Mail, just over 120 years old, and still going strong in the United Kingdom. It was going strong in 1914 - and when war broke out between Britain and German, it's portrayed itself as the "paper which fortold the war". It's critics argued, its anti-German stance was one of the factors which pushed Britain in the conflict. Adrian Bingham is a senior lecturer in History at Sheffield University in England, and he's on the line from there now.
