The General Motors Corporation created this poster in 1942, early in World War II. The poster features menacing images of German leader Adolph Hitler and the Japanese Prime Minister, Hideki Tojo, scowling over the American side of the globe. Both are armed and dangerous with Hitler holding a pistol while Tojo wields a bloody knife. Small houses form a line at bottom, underscoring the message of threats to ordinary lives.

At the right, there is a small white circle with a picture of a plane inside it, and the words "Our Job: Keep'em Firing."

The message is clear in the images and colors: America is in mortal danger and you must work long and hard to counter the threat.
