GERMAN PROPAGANDA POSTER QUOTES KAISER WILHELM
A sobering printed broadside, 11 1/2" x 19", [n.p., n.d.], in French, a propaganda poster likely issued in France or Belgium meant to instill fear in the soldiers defending their homelands. The poster partly quotes a speech given by Wilhelm II to recruits in Potsdam on Nov. 23, 1891. In part: "...RECRUITS!...You may be called upon at any moment to shoot at members of your own family, or to cut down father, mother, brothers or sisters. My orders in this respect are to be executed without alacrity, and without murmur...You must do your duty without listening to the voice of your hearts!...". Large chip at left margin, a few marginal tears and weak folds.
