WWII Propaganda Analysis

Respectful Accountable Prepared and Punctual

        This page is intended to provide an overview of the propaganda posters utilized by the United States government during WWII.  Each of these pictures was a vital link in the road to victory for the United States in WWII.  The content of these posters has not been altered.  Thus, please view these posters with a historically sensitive lens.  Ask yourself - what is the meaning of the poster?  how does the poster make you feel? who is the intended audience of the poster? who is the "enemy"?

        Propaganda has been used for centuries to convince the masses to adhere to a specific policy or cultural norm. World War II was no exception to this rule.  However, the propaganda of this conflict was more persuasive then ever before.  The creators of this "propaganda" began to draw from advancements and innovations made in the fields of psychology, sociology, and basic science.  The works of this generation were so effective that contemporary politicians still draw messages, themes, and images from the artists of the WWII era.  For example, do you notice any similarities between the posters above and any images you have seen, or heard of, in the 21st century?
