    Description

    World War II Canadian Propaganda (Wartime Information Board, Ottawa Canada, early 1940s). "Danke Schön! Thanks for the Tip-Off." Poster (18" X 24").
    Although Canada was not under attack during WWII, propaganda posters played an important role in encouraging enlistment and financial support of the war effort as well as making appeals for discretion and secrecy. In this ominous image, a German U-Boat captain with a menacing grimace leans over the side of his U-Boat as a ship sinks in the background. Canadian WWII posters largely omitted graphic violence, but as shown here, delivered instead a direct message about the threat of spies. The rare poster has been folded vertically and horizontally, has a very small tear in the left border, and has pinholes in each corner. Dramatic war images by artist Russel A.J. Taber. Very Fine.
