Propaganda Posters played a very important role in strengthening the cause of the nations involved in World War 1. They helped recruit men to join the military and Red Cross, and served as a fundraising tool. They also provided information, and reminded people to contribute to the war effort by not wasting food. The countries involved in World War 1 included Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Russia, The United Kingdom, and The United States of America. Each country used World War 1 Propaganda Posters to advertise and encourage their citizens to support the war. World War 1 started on July 27, 1914 and ended on November 1918.
