Title
The rising sun chases away the Trotsky-Lenin-Germany nightmare from Young Russia
Description
"Prostrate Russia in her night of ruin was the hunting-ground of revolutionary rats such as Lenin and Trotsky, who viewed with alarm the menace to their schemes threatened by Japanese intervention. Raemaekers has wonderfully caricatured the feature of the two revolutionaries in the heads of the nocturnal vermin, and the German associations they formed are revealed by the helmeted monstrosity in the left corner. This is, perhaps, the only cartoon of Raemaekers where his anticipations have not been realised, through no fault, however, of the would-be intervener."
