Huge poster 47x35" to relay war news to the troops. This one distributed 4 June 1945 and reporting the news for the week of 22-29 May 1945. One side shows maps of the various theaters of war at the time such as the B-29 bombing of Tokyo and Chinese victories over the Japanese forces. The reverse is truly fascinating in that it relates the story of propaganda leaflets; why they are used, how they are deployed and how they work to get the enemy to surrender. Another unknown-to-me-poster discovered! Very good condition, folded like most.
