Printed posthumously from the block by David Maes.
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.
