World War 2 Propaganda Posters – part 5

During World War 2, and for a period beyond, the Allies generated propaganda to influence the population towards support for the war effort. A wide range of media was employed aimed at local and overseas audiences. Traditional forms of media such as newspapers and posters were joined by new media, including cinema (film), newsreels, and radio. A wide range of themes were addressed, fostering hostility to towards the enemy, support for the allies, and specific pro-war projects such as conserving metal, waste, and growing vegetables.

For more information see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 - 4 also.

This is part 5 of a 9 - part post on World War 2 propaganda posters:

The Four Freedoms is a series of four oil paintings, made in 1943. Each original is 116.2 x 90 cm, and are now held in the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. They refer to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms State of the Union Address (January 1941), in which he identified essential human rights that should be universally protected. The theme was incorporated into the Atlantic Charter and became part of the charter of the United Nations. The paintings were reproduced in The Saturday Evening Post over four consecutive weeks in 1943. They became the highlight of a touring exhibition sponsored by The Post and the U.S. Department of the Treasury. The exhibition and accompanying sales drives of war bonds raised over $132 million.
