* AuthorTract. ArmiesAreEvil: "Tommy" is an AuthorTract written to [[DefiedTrope defy]] this trope, and especially the hypocrisy inherent in how soldiers were treated in peacetime and in wartime.

* CreatorBreakdown: Kipling was an ardent imperialist. Then his only son died in WorldWarOne, after dad had pulled some strings to get him into the service when medical conditions might otherwise have kept him out. His "Epitaphs of War" afterwards were extremely bitter about the nature of the conflict, including the famous "our fathers lied" segment.

* {{Defictionalization}}: Some of the dialect of [[BritsWithBattleships the British Army]] was actually made up by Kipling. Originally it was a device to give the atmosphere of how soldiers talked without using the words [[MoralGuardians soldiers actually used]]. In WorldWarI a lot of boys entered the army brought up on Kipling and imported the dialect they thought was "soldierly".
