The French drawer and caricaturist Abel Faire produced the most succinct posters of the First World War. Understanding these posters better requires an awareness of the deep-seated anti-German feelings in France. This alone explains the use of signs and symbols for the German enemy: The Kaiser with a broken sword, pressed down to his knees by Allied flags. Belittling war opponent’s signs and symbols of sovereignty became an important method for Allied propaganda.
