About: Born in France, Castaigne was one of the academically-trained European artists recruited by American publishers to help meet the soaring demand for magazine illustration.
This story centers on military conflicts in Eastern Europe in the decade before World War I. Ernest D. Swinton was a British engineer who assumed the pseudonym Ole Luk-Oie (a figure from Hans Christian Andersen's tales) to conceal his identity as a clandestine military specialist.
