From now until HOPE AT DAWN releases on June 24th, I'm sharing WWI tidbits here on my blog! Today's is about war posters.
War posters were all the rage during the Great War, inviting citizens to join the war effort, buy liberty bonds during loan drives, support the troops, etc. This particular poster plays a part in Livy and Friedrick's story in HOPE AT DAWN.
This is one of my favorites from Great Britain at the time!
While many of these propaganda posters inspired American citizens to greater patriotism, others may have contributed to a growing fear and mistrust of German-Americans during WWI. HOPE AT DAWN explores the anti-German sentiment that swept the nation during America's involvement in the Great War and the role propaganda may have played in this.
Would these war posters have inspired you?
