Defeat the Kaiser and his U-boats : victory depends on which fails first, food or frightfulness : eat less wheat.

Description:

In the foreground is the profile of Kaiser Wilhelm II wearing a German helmet. His face is colored green. In the background is a u-boat in the water; farther in the distance is a sinking ship with smoke rising from it. The sky is colored orange and the orange sky is reflected on the surface of the water. Centered at the bottom of the poster is a circular seal: a shield with a U.S. flag motif, surrounded by wheat stalks. (This is a seal of the U.S. Food Administration.)
