Following on his awesome week-by-week recounting of the events of World War I, Indy Neidell and company have created a YouTube channel to do a week-by-week account of World War II, beginning with Germany’s invasion of Poland in 1939.
This animated short was produced by the Army Corps’ First Motion Picture Unit and MGM, and released by the US War Department in 1944.
Hakes American and Collectibles auctioned off this small collection of “Jap Hunting Licenses”–anti-Japanese propaganda from World War II. From the auction description,
