This article examines the development of theories of war propaganda in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Beginning with early theorists of war propaganda the article assesses the development of a 'science of propaganda' following World War I, before considering more recent works on war propaganda that focus particularly on the role of informal sources, such as the media. Finally, the article briefly assesses the role of propaganda during the 1991 Gulf War.
