World War One Propaganda Posters

Last term we looked at the early stages of World War One and a poem by Jessie Pope that encouraged young men to join the army. Using poems like “Who’s for the Game?” was not the only way that men were encouraged to sign up. Each of the nations which participated in World War One from 1914-18 used propaganda posters not only as a means of justifying involvement to their own populace, but also as a means of procuring men, money and resources to sustain the military campaign. I have added some World War One propaganda posters below.
