American propaganda during World War II

In the face of obstacles - COURAGE

BE SURE YOU HAVE CORRECT TIME! This poster intended for navigation students combines instruction with caricatures of enemy leaders, L-R: Hitler, Mussolini, and Hirohito.

During active American involvement in World War II (1941–45), propaganda was used to increase support for the war and commitment to an Allied victory. Using a vast array of media, propagandists instigated hatred for the enemy and support for America's allies, urged greater public effort for war production and victory gardens, persuaded people to save some of their material so that more material could be used for the war effort, and sold war bonds. Patriotism became the central theme of advertising throughout the war, as large scale campaigns were launched to sell war bonds, promote efficiency in factories, reduce ugly rumors, and maintain civilian morale. The war consolidated the advertising industry's role in American society, deflecting earlier criticism.[1]

World War 2

World War 2 Propaganda

World War II saw continued use of propaganda as a weapon of war, both by Hitler's propagandist Joseph Goebbels and the British Political Warfare Executive.

Some historical revionists claim that the use of gas chambers in the Holocaust is an instance of an effective Allied propaganda campaign that could not be reined in after the war, much like the now discredited claim made during the Gulf War that Iraqi soldiers were ripping newborn babies out of incubators and throwing them to the ground.

British propaganda during World War II

A collection of posters on various themes

Britain re-created the World War I Ministry of Information for the duration of World War II to generate propaganda to influence the population towards support for the war effort. A wide range of media was employed aimed at local and overseas audiences. Traditional forms such as newspapers and posters were joined by new media including cinema (film), newsreels and radio. A wide range of themes were addressed, fostering hostility to the enemy, support for allies, and specific pro war projects such as conserving metal and growing vegetables.

World War 2 Propaganda

World War 2 Propaganda

Thought controls action or lack of action. The ability to control thought was a weapon of war along side other means of persuasion. Back in 1922, noted journalist, Walter Lippman, reviewed in his book, "Public Opinion", French World War 1 military reports. He concluded that the French military always highlighted German losses and not French casualties which were equally as bad. He said, "We call this propaganda".

World War I & World War II Propaganda Posters

The Brandeis University World War I and World War II Propaganda Posters collection includes nearly a hundred different images promoting the two war efforts. Inspired by Western European examples, American pictorial publicity during the two world wars rested largely on artistic and industrial ingenuity. The posters had a variety of aims; many focused on programs such as The United War Work Campaign, the Red Cross, and most notably the subscription of Liberty and Victory loans. Each of the four Liberty loan campaigns (1917-1918) and the Victory loan campaign (1919) created prodigious poster art on both the local and national levels.Many different poster designs were created, the majority of which were printed in large quantities. A number of posters were created by professional artists, some of whom were already widely known through their work in books, magazines, and advertising. This collection includes such famous artists as Howard Chandler Christy, Haskell Coffin, Casper Emerson, Jr., Harrison Fisher, James Montgomery Flagg, Henry Patrick Raleigh, and Adolph Treidler, to name a few. A full finding aid to the World War I and World War II Propaganda Posters collection is available here.
