During World War II posters were everywhere, imparting immediate and forceful messages. Posters were used in a variety of ways: as an appeal to patriotism in aid of recruitment, as warnings to maintain national security against spies and saboteurs, and as general pleas to aid the war effort, either by working in factories or buying war bonds. They were also responsible for arousing a wide range of sentiments: hatred, paranoia, pride and nationalism. Posters of World War II is a study of the war poster as a propaganda phenomenon between 1939 and 1945. Never before has such a comprehensive collection of World War II posters and authoritative text been combined. Posters of World War II contains 200 posters, which are accompanied by detailed captions. The text details the facts about each poster: contains artist profiles, explains the significance of its message, and considers its impact in the context of the war. The book considers the changing nature of posters. As the war developed they reflected the changing strategic situation. In 1941 and 1942, for example, Soviet posters had concentrated on calls to save the Motherland, but after 1943 Russian propaganda changed as a result of battlefield victories on the Eastern Front. Now the call was to destroy the German fascist invader and capture Berlin itself. Posters of World War II is an important contribution to the study of propaganda in warfare.
