The end of World War I brought about a major change both in Europe as in the rest of the world. Since four great European empires (the Austro-Hungarian, Russian, German and Ottoman Empires) ceased to exist and a large number of smaller states were constituted on their former territories, global dominance shifted from Europe to the other side of the Atlantic – the United States. Even though the war was considered by the victory propaganda to be the last one in human history, this proved far from truth. The Treaty of Versailles had not secured just terms of peace, thus paving the way towards a new, even more horrifying global conflict. The number of human casualties of WWI was immense: around 10 million dead and 20 million injured people, and it took Europe a lot of time to recover. Today, as we commemorate the centennial of the outbreak of WWI, the majority of historical circumstances are well known. However, several questions have so far remained unanswered: how much of the general political context was known to those who survived the war or feared for their loved ones at the front; how the war was (re)presented by the conflicting sides and how human loss was justified to the general public. This diploma thesis tackles precisely these issues by analyzing the representation of the Entente countries (Serbia, the Russian Empire, Great Britain, France, the US, Italy) in Zagreb daily newspapers “Jutarnji list” and “Obzor” at the beginning of the war (1914/1915) as well as at its end (1917/1918). In so doing, this paper relies on the method of comparative analysis, i.e. it compares and contrasts representations of the Entente countries in the above mentioned periodicals at the beginning of the war as well as at its ending. The analyzed topics include: war developments on the front-lines and Austro-Hungarian domestic politics during as well as the shift in their representation after the War.
