    Pearl Harbor happened on December 7, 1941, not 1942!

    I liked the list but I would have liked to see posters that I was less familiar with than the standard American ones that i’ve seen many times before. No italian posters? This list might have been better served being a top twenty instead.

        A sequel would be great!

        I must say that I was fine with seeing some of the more recognizable posters on this list, such as numbers 10 and 2, because the list is titled “Top 10 WWII Propaganda Posters”, and those two are very influential; the list would be incomplete without them.

    Its amazing how popular Rosie the Riveter is. We are so conscious of it you would think it was on every street corner from 41 to 45. Yet it wasn’t. “. The poster—one of many in Miller’s Westinghouse series—was not initially seen much beyond one Midwest Westinghouse factory where it was displayed for two weeks in February 1943.”

    Yet it has in turn turned into a different piece of propaganda but of the post 80s era.

    A quick point about #8, the English didn’t think they would be destroyed until 1940, specifically, after the Battle of Dunkirk, when they were pushed out of mainland Europe.

    “we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain” is straight from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Just something that could be added to your commentary.

    The Keep Calm and Carry On poster was designed by the Ministry of Information during WW2 but actually, it was never used in public and only became popular AFTER the war.
