Hansi (Waltz) Patience! Confidence!  Silence! French troops are shown retaking Strasbourg, capital of Alsace, identified by its Cathedral. one of the most important of French war aims. Strasbourg had been ceded to Germany as part of the humiliating treaty that ended the Franco Prussian War in 1871.  Hansi was himself a native Alsatian and a famous book illustrator. His whimsical touch adds to this festive, longed for, scene. making this a perfect poster for a child's bedroom.  20x15 mint, conservation backed.
