Posters and Propaganda
During the war, the Allies wanted to persuade people to feel more hopeful about the war, and to see the enemy as weak, evil or silly. This is called ‘propaganda’.
Lots of different posters with important messages were printed. There were posters to remind people to recycle clothes, posters to warn people about spies, posters to encourage people to grow their own food, and to encourage women to work in factories.
