UWP-0050 WWII US Propaganda poster "How Paper Bullets Save Lives"

This item is listed for historical interest only. It is not for sale.
Item #21177

This is a fascinating poster that was apparently made near the end of the war describing how psychological warfare had helped to fight the war.  The poster describes what is meant by paper bullets and how effective they are at getting the enemy to surrender.  In the lower left corner it has a question and answer section where it asks questions that a typical GI is probably thinking while reading the poster.  For example "What the hell kind of war is this- firing paper pamphlets at the enemy?  Nobody ever got killed with a hunk of paper!"  This poster was produced specifically for the South Pacific.  I have never seen or heard of one of these posters before and it has a fascinating story with it.  The size is approximately 24" by 20".  Overall nice condition with some minor seam wear at the single fold in the center of the poster and some minor staining to the edges see the pictures.
