Remember Belgium: Buy Bonds Fourth Liberty Loan

"German soldier, wearing pointed helmet, leading girl by hand, with city burning in background." Because he was an outspoken supporter of the allied war effort during World War I, Clarence Darrow was invited by the British government to spend three months in Europe in the summer of 1918 to bolster support. An important result of the trip was that Darrow came to believe that the British and French governments had deliberately spread propaganda by claiming repeatedly that the German military committed war crimes. This was later found to be the case as Germany had been repeatedly accused of committing war crimes against Belgium children as well as others.
