Since World War I, nose art has adorned military aircraft around the world. Intended for friendly rather than enemy eyes, these images—with a wide range of artistic expression—are part of the personal and unit histories of pilots and aircrews. As civilian and military attitudes and rationales for war change from one conflict to the next, changes can also be seen in the iconography of nose art. This analysis from a cultural perspective compares nose art in the United States, Great Britain and France from World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

Although soldiers throughout history have created war souvenirs, the term trench art originated in France during the early years of World War I. The War to End All Wars produced trench art on a scale never seen before or since.

Nach seinem fulminanten Schlussspurt beim Finale der Olympischen Spiele in Berlin 1936 beginnt seine Odyssee während des Zweiten Weltkriegs im Pazifik.
