La Croix Militaire
Description
"Yes, today they give Jean the Military Cross, and tomorrow they will give him a cross of wood," said a shrewd French peasant mother to a friend of the present writer. The artist, with fine spontaneity, has caught in this cartoon the brimming emotion of the hour when the old couple see their son before them again, safe and smiling. nothing more do they ask. And he has been decorated for valour!"
