A German propaganda poster depicts the military action of 1915 on a symbolic map of Europe. Each country represented by a depiction of their soldiers or national personifications. Britain is represented by John Bull who uses money as bait to fish for allies. France is represented by a wounded Marianne, who is aided by a British soldier. Germany is represented by three soldiers, one of whom moves towards France, while the other two, aided by an Austro-Hungarian soldier, attack a Russian figure. Another Austro-Hungarian soldier hits an Italian soldier in the mouth with the butt of his rifle. Turkey is represented by a man using a knife and fork to pick up and eat warships.
