Attack, Attack, Attack


Ferdinand Warren.  “Attack Attack Attack. Buy War Bonds.” 1942. 40 1/4 x 28 1/4. Color photo-offset.  Very good condition.


A classic U.S. Government Printing Office poster for World War II.  The government produced many dramatic posters to boost morale, encourage enlistment, sell war bonds and generally increase public support for the war effort.  These were printed in Washington, folded and sent out around the country.

This image shows soldiers in foreground with bayonets and machine guns reach the beach head, while reinforcements arrive on the beach below, air support flies above and a battleship is visible in the distance.  The image was drawn by Ferdinand Warren (1888-1981).
