Commentary
The title is a pun connected with "One Hundred Battles, One Hundred Victories." Kobayashi studied Western newspaper caricatures, especially the ones by London journalist Charles Wirgman (1832-91). He applied the new humorous looks to the SIno-Japanese and Russo-Japanese war print series, which became very popular.
