WW2 Propaganda Poster: Rising Sun

Not only is this WW2 Poster clever it has a lot of instructions/guidelines for Americans. Taking care of the rising sun is a reference to Japan in WW2. Fighting in the Pacific is an often overlooked element to WW2 but none the less crucial in how the War panned out. Did people really stop and read all the different lines? Each one being a 'Key' to Victory. We it worked in the end I guess.

WW2 American Propaganda Poster: Yamamoto's aggression

American propaganda poster depicting Yamamoto's aggression, circa 1943. Its interesting how much Europe forgets the influence Japan had on getting America to join the allied forces in WW2. It feels like they were the number one enemy to America.  Anyway a not so subtle hint of what could happen seemed to be the message of this poster.

WW2 American Propaganda Posters: Smack the Jap; Snakes

 An American Poster from WW2. Many of the posters would use derogatory words for the Japanese and Germans. You have specific posters for each of the different services, Army, Navy etc.

Again from American in WW2. The use of something evil, nasty to depict  the enemy. Not 100% sure what the chain through the snake is supposed to represent.

WW2 Propaganda Poster: English Map; Daddy Great War

Not seen this one before, just  a standard map of Great Britain asking for army recruits. This is from the start of WW2.

I like this one, from WW2 where the children asking their father what he did in the Great War (WW1 is often refered to as this). A guilt trip to get people signed up for WW2 so you wont be in the situation in the future.

WW2 Propaganda Posters: Enemy propaganda, War bonds

Not really posted many if any WW2 posters from American so here a few. Standard them against us message. Interesting drawing of the enemy!

Most WW2 posters you see in America were asking people to save, help out the best they could. Generally buying War bonds was popular to fund the war effort.
