Marne, Yser, Somme, Verdun : l'aurore.

Description:

At right, a French soldier in uniform and helmet holds a French flag. To the left and slightly behind him are two women, one wearing a traditional dress and bonnet of the Lorraine region and the other wearing the traditional dress and headdress of Alsace. The woman from Lorraine brings the flag to her lips as if to kiss it. The top section of the poster contains a portion of the title printed in red, which is partly obscured by laurel branches and a portion of the flag from the lower section.
