Original Posters - This Man Is Your Friend


#1

These are somewhat low resolution copies of original war posters from a series I term as “This Man Is Your Friend” - essentially in the early phase of the active war effort of the United States, we generated posters with stereotypical exemplars of our allies on them; I don’t think I have the full set, but this can be used as promotional material.

I just want to mention that the Ethopian one is entirely bad ass while the Dutch and English shots are probably the most insulting to their respective nationals - see the makeup on the Dutch Sailor? Also note that he is a sailor, not a combatant? Hurm…

I want to use these in a run of posters/fliers where each side has a different advertisement and a different poster. Not at present, nor soon, but eventually. Just for the U.S. fliers? Y/N?
