Harvey Dunn Victory Is a Question of Stamina 1917. Harvey Dunn was one of seven artists selected by General 'Black Jack' Pershing to record the valiant efforts of the U.S. Army.  The seven artists chosen had access to battlefields that banned photographers. Dunn portrays soldiers sprinting through a wintry no-mans-land reminding viewers of the sheer energy combat requires. Subtitle 'fuel for fighters' includes wheat, meat, fats and sugar. Thanks to conservation efforts and sufficient farm production Americans soldiers were well fed during the war. Conversely food was scarce in Germany, a prewar importer of food.  The allied naval blockade cut off food imports. Gemans called the winter of 1917-18 year of the turnip. Food shortages were an important consideration in the German surrender. Rare. 30x20 near mint, conservation backed.
