    Description

    World War I Propaganda (Army Air Service, 1917). Full-Bleed Recruitment Poster (20.75" X 27") "Be An American Eagle!" Charles Livingston Bull Artwork.
    Long before there was a US Air Force, and before there was the Army Air Corp, there was the Army Air Service. When the USA entered the war on April 6, 1917, there was no established division of military for the air. So, starting May 21, the School of Military Aeronautics was created and needed recruits. This poster by Charles Livingston Bull was created to encourage young men to enlist. The graphics were inspiring; an American bald eagle shows clear superiority over the German Eagle while planes fly off to war in the background. Touchup has been applied to a minor bottom left corner chip, and there is some slight unaddressed edge wear. Very Fine on Linen.
