In the Stacks:  World War I propaganda posters at the Harry Ransom Center

It was supposed to be the “the war to end war” but unfortunately it wasn’t. And in addition to the horror of the battlefield (ten million men killed) WWI also featured a battle of propaganda.

Thanks to its newly digitized collection of over 100 propaganda posters from WWI the Ransom Center gives us a front row seat to the battle to win the hearts and minds of the American people and its allies as well as the enemy attempts to do the same.
