''War is the National Industry of Prussia''

NEUMONT, Maurice.

En 1788 Mirabeau desait déjà: La Guerre est lIndustrie Nationale de la Prusse.
Paris: P.J. Gallais et C.ie, for La Conference au Village contre la Propagande Ennemie en France, c.1917. Chromolithograph, sheet 570 x 790mm..

A French serio-comic map for the First World War, by Maurice Neumont (1868-1930), attacking the war-like tendencies of the Prussians and Germans. The map of Europe shows the expansion of Prussia into a united Germany, with the siezed territories of Poland, Sleswig-Holstein, Alsace and Lorraine. Still this is not enough land: a pickelhaubed octopus stretches its tentacles across the rest of the continent. Top right images of soldiers comares the size of the Germanic armies in 1715, 1815 (the year the Prussians helped win Waterloo) and 1914.
A chilling quote comes from the 'Alldeutscher Verband': ''The German people should to rise up as a master race over the inferior peoples of Europe''.
