There were hundreds of posters created by the US government during World War Two. They were used to do many different types of things. This poster is one of my favorites because I love the subject matter.
It was created by the US Treasury to help sell war bonds in 1944. It was by the artist R. Moore and depicts a landing by US troops from landing craft on to an enemy held beach. The troops are under heavy fire from enemy artillery and and troops as they storm the beach. I think the action packed subject matter is very appealing.
This particular poster is fairly hard to find today. They do not often come up for sale and when they do, they usually sell for a price higher than comparable other US bond posters.
