Marching Towards WW I: Cartoons Magazine Centennial, January 1913

From the January 1913 edition of Cartoons Magazine, we have a few cartoons which we can recognize now as events that led towards World War I, though in their day, they were just more examples of European countries’ centuries of being unable to get along with each other.

Above, on that issue’s cover, cartoonist W.A. Ireland reflects the attitude of Americans — many of whom either came from Europe themselves, or were descended from European immigrants — that they had left Europe at least partially to get away from the continual bloodlust of Europe’s monarchs, and wanted nothing to do with Europe’s wars.

Below, two German cartoons of the day.

Click on the below pictures to view the cartoons in detail, and read their captions.
