Abstract

In this volume thematically centered around the memorialization of war, the author of this chapter considers World War I memorials in Belgium, arguing that the inter-war generation of Belgians refused to accept the unbearable brutality of the reality of the conflict and instead "invented a new war: clean, beautiful, and above all useful."
