A "fascinating" guide to war propaganda of WWI and WWII, from "Loose Lips Sink Ships" to "Keep Calm and Carry On"-includes vintage images (Firetrench). A Guide to War Publications of the First & Second World War is devoted to the printed ephemera that was designed to educate, instruct, inform, and entertain during the first and second World Wars. This includes soldiers' Field Regulations, updates airmen received about airborne early warnings, bomb sights, and radio navigation, and materials sailors were given to help them identify enemy aircraft and operate new weapons on submarines. This comprehensive guide illustrates the large amount of material produced during the war by looking at encouraging wartime sayings such as: "Go To IT!," "Come Into The Factories," "Keep Calm and Carry On," "Dig for Victory," "Lend A Hand on the Land," and "Walk When You Can." While showing how other messages warned of consequences to irresponsible behavior: "Careless Talk Cost Lives," "Loose Lips Sink Ships," "Keep It Under Your Hat," and "Be Like Dad, Keep Mum." Arthur Ward gives information on what propaganda was produced, what items are still available and where to find them, and how to conserve and store vintage printed items.
