    Default Propaganda posters

    Sad to see how many of these are just as relevant today. Some powerful imagery.

    definately one of the best; and on the opposite end of the artistic spectrum I also really like #18, very minimalistic, very powerful [that's probably a pun], no caption required

    #18 and #26 great choices.

    #18 really made me stop and think about the talent of someone to come up with such a literally graphic way to illustrate the message.

    #26, the old "battle-axe". I hope you've watched "Suffragette" Egg, it really makes you think about how hard they made life for those women - particularly the working-class women that supported the vote.

    Sadly #1 is still so relevant.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    #15 is attributed to the USSR and seems an unlikely message coming from there. A powerful poster.

    not sure i would agree with that being unlikley - the USSR were no more keen on nuclear war than the west was [both sides having their idiots of course] and that's what makes deterrent work; it's when one side does not care that we are all in trouble

    I have to say I avoided watching "Dr. Strangelove" for ages and then finally ended up watching it. What a great film and fantastic performances by the cast.

    In recent times Putin hasn't held back in reminding us that Russia is a nuclear power. I do remember the story of James Blunt saving us from a very dodgy situation.
