Description

This Dutch cartoon shows a bound Belgian worker led away by German troopers while a third German soldier bars his wife at the front door to prevent her from helping the worker. Allied control of the world sea lanes allowed the Entente nations to import laborers from China, Southeast Asia, India, and Egypt while simultaneously denying the Germans access to international labor through the blockade.
