He believed that the world’s men were going ‘soft’. b. At the age of 18, Kipling’s son, John, was sent off to war. He was never found (although now it is believed they have found his grave). c. Kipling wrote propaganda for the war. d. When his son went missing, Richard Kipling wrote the poem, “My Boy Jack” in 1915, most likely as a tribute to his son. e. Kipling came up with the term for Unidentified Soldiers and pushed for the all soldiers, regardless of rank, to have the same graves. 2. WWI Poetry a. Poetry was very common in WWI. There were different topics, but the most popular were about pre-war and during-war things. b.

Other factors include it was easier to produce and was considered an ‘eloquent’ medium. 3. Total War a.
