Oh wow, some of these are priceless! The Hitler one's are the best. But there are some great points brought up. Especially when it comes down to pooling money (for national resources) and car pooling. And its a known fact (well, idea) that we repeat history. Propaganda is no exception- only the method of its display is.

I love Mad Men too, Cabaker! I just started trying to get through them on demand before the new season starts, but I don't think I will finish them in time.

Makes me feel young when I recognize a parody orre-do of one of these before the original.

my dad always joked with me when i was bad that he was going to "send me to live with his other Mama-san and my half siblings in nam" if i didnt behave....now i dont know if he was joking or not. I have pictures of him, with many women, in thailand on leave and in vietnam.

I have used these posters in my classroom for the last 2 years. My kids were shocked, but loved it. It really hit home for them that the war was not just affecting those on the front line. I'll try to see if I can find the European ones, they are great too.

When my dad was in the Navy, before his first overseas leave, he and several guys got "the talk", where they end with the statement "Is 15 seconds of pleasure worth a lifetime of trouble?" From the back of the room someone raised their hand and asked: "How do you make it last 15 seconds?" :rotfl:

"keeping your mouth shut is a good idea in war. especially if you're taking your chances with ladies who "look" clean but aren't. and they might be a lure!" :ROTFL: Kris! Considering the examples of racist posters, I'm surprised there's not one in there warning about the specific dangers of the "Oriental woman," too. :ponder:

I asked my grandpa about those "loose women" posters directed at soldiers — he laughed and said he remembered them, and that some of "those boys serving had just come off the farm!" Pretty priceless. I'm glad you all liked seeing them!

Can you imagine asking someone to keep their mouth shut nowadays? You'd have a 1st amendment lawsuit on your hands quicker than anything...

my granny had a WOW pin. I didn't know what it meant though. I can't wait to fish around for it when i get home! now I know what it means. yeah, keeping your mouth shut is a good idea in war. especially if you're taking your chances with ladies who "look" clean but aren't. and they might be a lure!

Yea I agree good job citizen! though i don't know if i would classify some of those posters (like the keeping your mouth shut ones) as propaganda, but its really interesting to see that stuff! i love vintage posters and adverts, probably part of the reason why I love Mad Men!! :)
