What you see here is a two page center fold for La Baionnette, by Cappiello. Pictured the German symbol of an eagle appears to be bleeding, and coughing up blood as it struggles to fly.

“The political weekly, La Baionnette, was a virtually anti-German publication during World War 1, publishing many anti-war drawings by leading artists of the period from 1915 to 1920. Cappiello contributed numerous covers and two-page center spreads from 1915-1917.” -Rennert, Jack. Cappiello, The Posters of Leonetto Cappiello. New York: The Poster Art Library, 2004, page 21
