    Here are some more Yugoslav Partisan posters.

    Translation from cyrillic: "Serbia can't be calmed!" It refers that Serbia can't settle down with the occupation.

    Translation: "For the final strike, everyone-everything!"
    [​IMG]
    Translation from Slovenian: "Death to occupiers and traitors!"

    This one is one of my favourite posters from the WWII. It shows Slovenian farmer defending from Germans and Italians while he's getting stabbed in the back by B.G. (Bela Garda>White Guard).

    India: Safe Drinking Water was not to be found.
    Milk in Tea was boiled until it lumped and turned over twice - to ensure that too was safe.
    Tea in Indian Restaurants is made that way to this day, and it is delicious!

    Thanks! :)
    I don't know where would these be published, but I know they were common on planes.

    Here are few Soviet posters:

    Translation: (sorry if it's wrong, my Russian isn't good): "In the name of fatherland, forward bogatyr!"
    [​IMG]
    Translation: (sorry again if it's wrong): "Hitler's Germany (on the sign under the helmet). It will be like it. (under the soldier)"
    [​IMG]
    Translation: "For the motherland!"
