Tourist practices to the Somme in the immediate aftermath of the Great War are politically significant because they mobilized contradictory experiences of commemoration, grief, reverence, leisure, spectacle and adventure. By the end of WWII, a much more toxic combination racism, patriarchy and dehumanization was at work as Allied forces made their way across the Pacific.
