One poster entitled, "These Men Are Doing Their Part--Let Us Do Ours" printed by Liberty Loan Committee. Text in the poster refers to noble Prussian families, Junkers and Krupps. Language suggests that "Prussianism" must end, and Allied soldiers will achieve this if citizens back home invest in bonds. Imagery depicts soldiers running from trenches with explosions going off in the background.

World War I took place between 1914 to 1918 between the Allied and Central Powers and resulted in over 10 million military deaths.
