The World at War - Propaganda Posters

The World at War collection feature a selection of World War I and World War II propaganda posters set against a gold plated brickwork effect.

Allied propaganda during World War II took various forms. Using a wide variety of media, it called for actions needed for the war, such as production and proper behaviour in the blackout, painted a dark picture of the Axis powers, and praised the Allies.

Recruitment was a central theme of domestic propaganda until the introduction of conscription in January 1916. The most common theme for recruitment posters was patriotism, which evolved into appeals for people to do their 'fair share'.

Among the most famous of the posters used in the British Army recruitment campaign of World War I were the "Lord Kitchener" posters, one of which depicted Secretary of State for War Lord Kitchener above the words "YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU".

Currently being offered as a set of 12, there is potential for more ingots to be added to increase the size of the collection.
