The interaction of soldiers and civilians in a Paris besieged by Prussian forces between 1870 and 1871 is captured in a series of remarkable publiications of caricatures and cartoons that highlight the political role of the military in time of war.

These were collected by Edwin Child, a British seed merchant who was present in Paris during the episode.
