    I wonder just how effective this poster was, if at all.

    Most Dutch volunteers, as we learned from Lyndon, joined the German armed forces to fight communism. So I don't think this particular poster had much effect.

    Damn, yes that was an unfortunate post of mine... :(

    It happens when you see the post as one part translation, and the other part comment, not having to do with the translation. And it happens when neither part of the post is in your own language!

    A small correction, "hiver" means winter, so the Legion of French Volunteers has covered itself in glory for three winters.

    Where do you get your Dutch from, scaramouche?

    In the Spanish Civil War most posters were more politically oriented, every party or group (even small towns) making theirs.

    This page has many form the Republican side with an explanation (in english) of the background:

    This page has many from the Aragon front, from both sides:
    http://www.barranque.com/guerracivil/carteles.htm


    [​IMG]
    It says "Rifles to the front. An inactive rifle is an enemy weapon."

    [​IMG]
    No comments :grin: :

    [​IMG]
    International Brigades: "The Internationals, with the spanish, we fight the invader"


    Posters from the Nationalist side are more difficult to find, because they're not politically correct today, not even for historians :roll:
    Fortunately, we have British hispanists :)

    Interesting that they try to evoke old national rivalries by having France as Napoleon, and Britain as a sea-creature (ie: naval power), but then add in the idea that Britain is 'Under Jewish control'. I put ' ' around that statement to show that it is a Nazi theory, not mine!

    That poster is indeed pretty far-fetched, since as far as I know Britain has never tried to conquer Europe. If you want to show them as vile invaders surely you would point to the Hundred Years' War?

    Evoking old national rivalries between England and France(of which there were definately many) was one of the favourite propaganda motives of french collaborationists.
    And after Mers -El -Kébir they had some sucess with it.

    But Napoléon wasn't one of their favourite figures for this, because in the eyes of the french far right, Napoléon was too much connected with the revolution of 1789, and liberalism in general.
    Their favourite historical figure, their "superstar" one might say was of course Joan of Arc, send by God and burned by the "perfideous" english.
    The 100 years war was continously used by the far right as anti-english propaganda.
    Even today, there is still a "Joan of Arc Cult" among the far right.
