A vintage 1941 British World War 2 army recruiting poster for the women's Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) by artist Abram Games, Britain's official war poster artist. Featuring the profile of a very chic uniformed ATS girl who looks as if she was born for the catwalk, the poster was banned by the then Prime Minister Winston Churchill for being too glamorous. He had a point. The job was anything but glamorous - more often than not the women ended up peeling potatoes and cleaning up. Some went on to work as welders and carpenters.

Every government that wages war needs to recruit fighting men and rally public support. During World War I & World War II, United States officials waged these public relations battles with tens of thousands of war posters hung in libraries, post offices and schools, both in big cities and along back roads. According to French historian Max Gallo, "for over two hundred years, posters have been displayed in public places all over the world. Visually striking, they have been designed to attract the attention of passers-by, making us aware of a political viewpoint, enticing us to attend specific events, or encouraging us to purchase a particular product or service." The modern poster, as we know it, however, dates back to 1870 when the printing industry perfected color lithography and made mass production possible. "In little more than a hundred years," writes poster expert John Barnicoat, "it has come to be recognized as a vital art form, attracting artists at every level, from painters to theatrical and commercial designers.
