Original U.S. WWII Defense Bonds Stamps “You Buy ‘Em, We’ll Fly ‘Em!” Propaganda Window Poster - 10” x 14”

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Guns, tanks, and bombs were the principal weapons of World War II, but there were other, more subtle forms of warfare as well. Words, posters, and films waged a constant battle for the hearts and minds of the American citizenry just as surely as military weapons engaged the enemy. Persuading the American public became a wartime industry, almost as important as the manufacturing of bullets and planes. The Government launched an aggressive propaganda campaign with clearly articulated goals and strategies to galvanize public support, and it recruited some of the nation's foremost intellectuals, artists, and filmmakers to wage the war on that front.

The Government tried to identify the most effective poster style. One government commissioned study concluded that the best posters were those that made a direct, emotional appeal and presented realistic pictures in photographic detail. The study found that symbolic or humorous posters attracted less attention, made a less favorable impression, and did not inspire enthusiasm. Nevertheless, many symbolic and humorous posters were judged to be outstanding in national poster competitions during the war.

This 10” x 14” poster was a product of one of those realistic pictures in photographic detail produced. The poster features a U.S. Army pilot in flight, giving thumbs-up signal out of the cockpit with airplanes in background.

The Poster Reads As:

“you buy ‘em
we’ll fly ‘em!”


The image on the poster is absolutely beautiful and without damage, besides fold marks being present and slight separation in the center fold. Once laid out and framed with a narrow matted border, this image would look phenomenal! You can never go wrong with wanting to add Air Corps related items to your collections.

The poster comes ready to be mounted, framed and displayed.

War Loans/Bonds History

War bonds are debt securities issued by a government to finance military operations and other expenditure in times of war. They are also a means to control inflation by removing money from circulation from a stimulated wartime economy. War bonds are either retail bonds marketed directly to the public or wholesale bonds traded on a stock market. Exhortations to buy war bonds are often accompanied by appeals to patriotism and conscience. Retail war bonds, like other retail bonds, tend to have a yield which is below that offered by the market and are often made available in a wide range of denominations to make them affordable for all citizens.
