Propaganda Posters : Pour Le Drapeau and Country

ArtDependence has curated a selection of these propaganda posters from around the world.

Propaganda posters are on view in all military museums around the world. Most present day wars are fought largely by technology, and possibly will be manned by robots in the future. At one time though, volunteer citizens were the sole method for advancing war. Military initiatives used posters as a tactic to recruit citizens for military service.  The most famous example is the Uncle Sam poster of the American military in which Uncle Sam points a finger of moral responsibility to recruit American forces during World War I. Many other countries also employed a similar approach. ArtDependence has curated a selection of these propaganda posters from around the world.
