One poster entitled, "We Won't Come Back Till It's Over, Over There," printed by Liberty Loan Committee. Text in the poster refers to American, French and English soldiers fighting the German army, which has been referred to as "the Hun." Language expresses a push to buy bonds as a way to support soldiers. Imagery consists of men in uniform waving from a steam ship; a strip of paper with musical notation of a 1917 war song "Over There" ; and a smaller framed illustration of a soldier helped by an aiding arm to climb over a trench with the text, "Lend Him A Hand, Buy Liberty Bonds."
"Over There" was a song written in 1917 by George M. Cohan which was popular during World War I and World War II. The lyrics reflect the expectation that Americans would be out of the war soon.
World War I took place between 1914 to 1918 between the Allied and Central Powers and resulted in over 10 million military deaths.
