'We'll Lick 'em! Just Give Us the stuff!' WW II US Army Poster
This poster was produced by the United States Army and printed by the U.S. Government Printing Office in 1943. It rallys people to do their patriotic duty by working on war production to "give us the stuff". The artist uses a visual reminder of the desire to revenge Pearl Harbor by showing the Japanese flag, shot full of holes and held with disgust by the soldier.
The original of this image is the printer's proof sheet. You can see the color-match blocks on the right hand side.
