WWI was famous for its propaganda posters. In fact, WWI is the reason the word â€œpropagandaâ€ is now a dirty word.
At the start of the war it wasnâ€™t, but as governments lied, withheld information, and manipulated the public, propaganda gained the negative connotation that it has today.
Here are two posters from WWI; one American, one British.
For each poster write a short paragraph that answers the following:
- What message is the poster trying to get across? How does the poster express that message?
- What emotions does the poster try to stimulate?
I am looking for 250-500 words for each poster.
