Support the Sixth War Loan

Historians and art critics alike are unanimous in their descriptions of the differences between the tone of the war posters from the Central Powers side of the war and those of the Allies. Germany, and especially Austria, often used religious or ----- references in their poster, referring to the Gods of Germania, here a guardian angel offers a bouquet of flowers to the gods, ensuring peace and prosperity. This is a particularly beautiful poster, perhaps the most beautiful created during the war. It is very soothing to view, created in 1917 at the height of the war and the height of the Central Powers’ might.

Even more subtle is the fact that this poster was created by Landersbank of the great Rothschild banking dynasty, one of the largest banks in Europe. Much of the Austrian noble families as well as the crown used this bank for both personal and business banking. At the end of the war, with physical losses and then reparations to the Allies, most of these families as well as the state were ruined. The bank failed several years later.

Workers and Peasants Pictorial

Panel One (top left)

The Chinese people suffered the most from the invading Japanese, made the greatest sacrifices and contribution to the war of resistance against Japan, so they stood against the forefront of the broad lineup of the US imperialists. Regardless of how the US imperialists clamored, the Chinese people, together with the peoples of the world headed by the Soviet Union and the force of an increasingly powerful Japanese democracy, must overcome the reaction of the US imperialists to make an effort to help Japan democratize. We will be for the East and the world's lasting peace and struggle.

Panel Two (right side)

Celebrate the great victory of the 8 year war of resistance against Japan by the United States imperialists. Since the anti-Japanese War, the Kuomintang Anti-Japanese part led by the Chiang Kai-Shek has retreated, pursued by the burgening people's national front.

Panel Three (bottom right)

The Japanese invaders did not surrender to the imperialist United States' paper tiger atomic bomb, and fought the British and Soviet troops after August 12. But surrender came. McArthur had the highest Allied position in Japan, and with great arrogance applied the Postdam Declaration with the intent to occupy Japan permanently. The Japanese army and navy are being rebuilt for the benefit of the US imperialists.

Panel Four (bottom middle)

Japanese army and navy are rebuilt in the name of US imperialism. The United States has rebuilt Japanese air force bases, using former kamikazes for aviators.

Panel Five (middle left)

The Japanese emperor and many major war criminals have not been punished. They are protected by the United States. McArthur is acting as an accomplice in a new policy of aggression.

Panel Six (middle left)

The imperialst United States presents reactionary policies and actions against Japan. The world is opposed to its occupation of Japan. India did not sign the treaty because it thought it would interfere with Japan's future sovereignty. Representatives of China should attend.

Songs of the Nightingales

Songs of the Nightingales

This Illustration tells a story of the Great Patriotic War in the Soviet Union. It happened near the end of the battle. A small group of German invaders entered a war ruined village. It was a quiet summer evening. They heard the song of a nightingake, Watching and listening intently, the enemy thugs suddenly discovered a Russian child sitting at the river's edge, whittling a piece of wood with a small knife. a German officer called the boy to come to him. The child played amongst them, but also taught them several bird cries.

The devils were headed to the village of Sumatas. They told the child to lead the way. He did so, side by side with the German lieutenant.

All the while the soldiers were trying to learn the bird calls, marching deeper into the forest. They soon came to meet some birds of a much stronger voice. Guerillas leapt out at the 32 devils calling "cuckoo", answering them with two machine guns. The boy had led them to the ambush, signaling by the bird calls just how many of the enemy were approaching.

Thus, the Germans were eliminated.
