World War 2 Propaganda Posters – part 9

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 other works see parts 1 - 8 also.

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