Offered in good condition, all colors are vibrant and easily discernible. Has toning, edge wear and is delicate at the fold lines. A striking and strong poster of a smiling soldier (a sergeant) wearing a helmet, lying prone in the grass. He holds a rifle in one hand and wipes his brow with the other.

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.
