Hey everyone - I came across some WWII propaganda posters a while ago, and was reminded of them last night by another member here. Thought that I would upload some of these in case someone has never seen some of these. I've got from most sides of the major players in the war, including - United States, Russia, and of course, the Nazi Germany agenda.

Hope you enjoy them as I have. Theres a lot to upload, and I'll be adding to them when I have time -

It's interesting to see those posters... I don't think most of them would fly now days, but it's cool to have a peek into the psyche back then. Wish I knew what the others said that aren't in English.

You and me both, brother... And yeah, there are some racially inflammatory pictures and captions in there that wouldn't fly today for sure.

relevant quotes:

"In politics nothing happens by accident, if it happens you can bet it was planned that way." --Franklin D. Roosevelt

"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." --Benjamin Franklin

"I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility and its stupidity. " -- Dwight D. Eisenhower

"The powers in charge keep us in a perpetual state of fear: Keep us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exorbitant sums demanded. Yet in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real...." ---General Douglas MacArthur

"The easiest way to gain control of the population is to carry out acts of terror." The public "will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened." -Joseph Stalin

"Naturally, the common people don't want war, but ... it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country."-- Hermann Goering, 1946, speaking at his Nuremberg trial

"The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home." -James Madison

"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." -James Madison

"War should only be declared by the authority of the people, whose toils and treasures are to support its burdens, instead of the government which is to reap its fruits." -James Madison

Very cool trip to a time when people banded together for a common cause. Hope we never have to go to that kind of place again, even though there are some who would probably love nothing more. The world is probably past the stage where this kind of unity is even possible. Could happen again though if we get blown back to the darker ages somehow.

I believe it can, & at some point will happen again, I'm sure. Once a common threat is established, former hated enemies will unite to defeat the common threat. But I do hope your right about never going there again...

Brilliant thread - enjoyed it a lot.

I love going to the Imperial War Museum here in London and looking at the posters like these - some really great minds worked on them!

S&F for a great OP

This one makes me want to invent a time machine, go back in time, and fight in WWII just for her.


I'm not sure I've seen much in the way of propaganda for current wars; at least nothing like this. Of course, I have seen plenty of "subtler" propaganda on the news channels. Nothing this overt, of course.
