This striking image was produced by Moody in 1928. Born in 1906 he had
been too young to participate in the war, but suffered its
consequences. His woodcut sums up, poignantly, his sense of the
futility of war and and antagonism towards the 'old order' which had
condemned so many to a needless death. As such he was expressing the
mood of his generation.
