Word War II Poster of the Week - 3


This week's poster is a dire reminder of the costs of war. Are you saving your waste fats for explosives? Every pound of bacon consumed is another bomb for the 8th Air Force to drop on the Reich. Save your drippings!

Ah, the Good War. "Honey, we should really have a second helping of bacon today--think of all the Liberators we lost over Ploesti! We need to do our part to win this war."

(This week's poster is from the Northwestern University World War II Poster Collection.)

An excuse to eat bacon is an excuse to eat bacon.
