The Power of Propaganda
“We want to see posters on fences, on the walls of buildings, on village greens, on boards in front of the City Hall and the Post Office, in hotel lobbies, in the windows of vacant stores … shouting at people from unexpected places with all the urgency with this war demands.” - OWI Official
World War II was fought with images and slogans as much as it was with tanks and guns. Propaganda was a powerful weapon in the arsenal of mass persuasion. Both the Allied and Axis powers used propaganda to enlist support for the war, to foster patriotism, and to define their enemy as dangerous and, in some cases, even subhuman.
