Physical description

Book jacket for 'Inside Europe' by John Gunter depicting a map of Europe in red and green. A cartoon image of Hitler saluting is depicted in southern Germany, and another figure, possibly Mussolini, is depicting doing the same salute over the south of Italy. There is one other figure of a dancing cossack over the land mass of Russia, playing a stringed instrument which resembles a banjo in the shape of a hammer and sickle. He is possibly a depiction of a Cossack Mamay figure of Ukranian folklore.
