Caricature map of the First World War as a dog-fight

JOHNSON, RIDDLE & CO.

Hark! Hark! The Dogs Do Bark!. With Note By Walter Emanuel.
London: G.W. Bacon & Co., 1914. Chromolithograph. Sheet 555 x 750mm.

'The Dogs of War are loose in Europe, and a nice noise they are making! It was started by a Dachshund that is thought to have gone mad...'
The Great War depicted as a dogfight with the British bulldog, French poodle and Belgian Griffon on one side and the German dachshund and 'Austrian Mongrel' on the other. Elsewhere the canine theme is abandoned: Tsar Nicholas is depicted behind the wheel of a steamroller that is crushing the Austrian's tail.
Walter Emanuel wrote several children's' books with canine themes: his 'A Dog Day or The Angel in the House' (1902) and 'Dogs of War' (1906) were illustrated by Cecil Aldin.
