The Great War is a reminder that warm humor is as effective an anti-war statement as cold, horrific irony. For one, the episodic nature of comedy, with its emphasis on riffs and routines over constant forward motion, suits a vision of a soldier’s life where more time is spent on labor, waiting, and bureaucracy than on the action itself. Most importantly, comedy glories in foolishness, laziness, lustfulness, cowardice, incompetence, insubordination, and gluttony.
