WW1 Propaganda: German cage, Australians Arise.

As a change I have selected a German WW1 propaganda poster. It shows the British Lion caged, crying and weak. This would give the impression to the Germans that we were there for the taking, swept under Germans power.


Australia played a huge part in WW1 & WW2, both in political influence and sending huge amounts of troops to fight. We can see by the poster that the fear of being 'Germanised' would have been key to recruiting for battle.
