The Unknown Soldier


One of the greatest propaganda coups of all time, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier spread around the world following World War I, where over 16 million people were killed, and 20 million more injured. Initially a popular demand to pay reverence to all those unidentified and dead on the battlefields, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was quickly appropriated by imperial powers and bent into a patriotic symbol of sacrifice. And so usually once a year there is a ceremony marking the dead in wars. But try asking questions about war out in the open on that day.
