Posters of the First World War (Imperial War Museum)
Available in Stock
Perhaps the most famous image to come out of the First World War is Alfred Leete’s poster of a pointing Lord Kitchener. No other form of propaganda had such a profound effect on ordinary people. This commemorative volume reproduces almost 100 posters from all the combatant nations in full colour. Whether in English or German, French or Russian, their message was the same: to demonize the enemy and win support for the war effort.
