The purpose of this paper is to compare the projections of future war by a talented illustrator with the true materialization of conflicts.
The paper traces Albert Robida's sequential narrative, using a selection of imaginative pictures to demonstrate the artist's range of anticipation.
The paper finds that the illustrator's visualization proved to be uncanny in its accuracy of projection.
Robida managed to be not only well ahead of his time; the accuracy of his foresight was largely exact from the point of view of feasible technology.
