AV-May Portfolio-09

The text of this German poster translates as “And you? Subscribe to the War Loan.” The image, another work by Fritz Erler, appealed to the emotions by depicting a wounded pilot with his arm in a sling. Erler’s impact as a World War I propagandist for Germany has been compared to that of Uncle Sam artist James Montgomery Flagg’s for the United States. (Library of Congress)
