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 World War II propaganda poster enlists Santa Claus in its message of encouraging wartime production of weapons. “Plenty of weapons the Inland Way” is a reference to the Inland Division of General Motors (where this poster was presumably displayed) which produced a variety of products for the war, including the M1 carbine which Santa appears to be deploying with.
This particular poster was found in the Office for Emergency Management’s archives. It appears this never got beyond the draft idea stage.
A World War II era propaganda poster that was part of a series aimed at encouraging factory workers to follow safety protocols.
