Vernon Morse WWII Original Art for Propaganda Poster P1395

This is happy propaganda, so radiant and confident one can almost believe the war was won on attitude. Good, that is. In fact it was won by sheer superiority in resources and manufacturing and a huge war effort on the part of the civilian populations as well as the military. This now exists as a positive souvenir of that heroic and tragic time.
