Posters, such as these, helped mobilize the nation for World War II.
They called for sacrifice and participation. Citizens were asked to
contribute time and money, to produce products, to conserve resources,
and to contribute to the war effort in personal ways. One Office of War Information
official said in 1943, "We want to see posters on fences, on the walls of buildings,
on village greens...in hotel lobbies, in the windows of vacant stores...[they should shout]
at people from unexpected places with all the urgency which this war demands."
