7th War loan - Now all together

Hello again all fans of propaganda!
After a long break, it's time to once again take a look in the wonderful world of propaganda.
Let's start off with an american poster, "7th war loan - Now all together"
What to say about the motive - an absolute classic. It's actually a painting of the original photo, which was taken at Iwo Jima 23 february 1945 by Joe Rosenthal. A smaller flag was raised a couple of hours before, but it was decided to raise a larger flag for propaganda purposes. The rest is pretty much history.
The 7th war loan turned out to be the most successfull ever.
