A simple but powerful weapon of propaganda, the impact of the poster on the minds of the Russian population during World War II cannot be overestimated. This book includes 210 posters from the collection of the Poster Fund of the Russian State Library. Many of them are very well known both in Russia and abroad but have never been comprehensively covered in any book since their first publication. The illustrations are prefaced by an introduction and followed by reference data organized both by the name of the artist and by the title of the poster. An excellent catalog of some of the best in Russian military poster art.
