Description A WWI Recruitment poster, using a New York Herald cartoon by W.A. Rogers. Shows an anthropomorphised Germany wading through a sea of dead bodies, with the slogan "Only the Navy can Stop This". Presumably a reference to the U-boat campaign sinking civilian ships, such as the Luisitania. Compare File:Track of Lusitania.jpg.

The author died in 1931, so this work is in the public domain in its country of origin and other countries and areas where the copyright term is the author's life plus 80 years or fewer.

Other versions
Applications-graphics.svg This is a retouched picture, which means that it has been digitally altered from its original version. Modifications: Levels adjusted, stains and creases removed, sharpening. I presumed that the paper was originally reasonably white - a reasonable assumption, given the way colours are used in this - but paper used in cheap posters is very bad paper, so yellows very readily..
