The Most Spectacular and Greatest of
All Thrilling Photo Sensations
Greater Than "The Birth of a Nation"
Scenes that thrill:
The city of New York is attacked by a powerful foreign foe.
You are an eyewitness. You see the enemy approaching, the pow
erlessness of the city, the inadequacy of its forts and defenses.
You see the havoc wrought by the enemy's cruisers, its submarines,
its airships by its shells, shrapnel, bombs. You see the most
beautiful skyline in the world in flames; the metropolis of the
Western Hemisphere devastated.
You 6ee New York fall into the hands of the enemy and the
desecration that follows.
You see Wall street in flames, Washington, D. C, destroyed.
You see the vivid scenes of battle, a raid of aeroplanes, submarine
torpedo attacks, battleships being sunk, and the invading hordes.
Then you are shown the way that such a calamity can be
avoided the one way. You are shown the way to peace the peace
for which America so earnestly prays the peace with honor.
