This is an original 1934 color print of a French gun and French military personnel. The caption writes, "In 1899 British soldiers were shot down by British guns that British armament firms had sold to the Boers. When in 1914 the Kaiser's armies marched westward into Belgium and eastward toward Russia, German soldiers were killed by German guns manned by the armies of King Albert and Czar Nicholas II [...] If a man must be shot to death, what difference does it make whether his enemy or his brother forges the gun that kills him?"
