Small format 3rd National Defense loan poster for France. A different look from most of the war posters asking to under write the national war loans. French troops recapture Strasbourg, capital of Alsace, identified by its marvelous cathedral. Alsace was taken by Germany after the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871). Hansi, a native of Alsace and a famous chidren's book illustrator, lends his whimsical touch to the festive scene.
