Very neat collection which provides insight into the culture of the time. From both Axis and Allies, a collection of 780 WW2 propaganda posters.

This one could have been recycled for use in the Eighties.

This one is interesting. The main point is not to go overboard being paranoid that your neighbor is a spy. Then this part is added at the end:

"Let it be said that American history never has or never will be blotted with crimes against humanity."

Just before we started fire-bombing civilians.

And the Native Americans...? Or maybe they don't count because they're not human?

If you read between the lines on alot of these posters they're extremely socialist (referring to the American ones).  All this talk about obeying govt. programs and what not.
