The legendary clash between the Allied Powers and the Axis Powers that became World War II led to the deaths of 64 million people before Germany ultimately surrendered to Allied forces on May 8, 1945.
This World War II Posters book is a visual encyclopedia of the war shared through a collection of actual posters made and displayed during the conflict. Soak in the art, messaging, and emotion of propaganda posters designed to recruit soldiers, encourage resource conservation, fight espionage and flagging morale, and raise funds for artillery, supplies, and more. Author David Pollack’s work showcases how propaganda on all sides influenced popular opinion and shaped both the outcome of the war and how the world interacted after peace returned.
Give this book to a history buff interested in a different take on World War II than most documentaries and history books offer. Perfect for visual learners, art historians, and or anyone who appreciates learning from our shared past, this hardcover tome will look beautiful on a library shelf displayed openly on a coffee table or desk.
