Countries used anger, hatred, and fear to get money, bonds, etc. to support the war.
Posters portrayed opposing countries as monsters so that men would want to fight for their families and countries safety.
"Some posters even tried to make them feel guilty, saying their children would be embarrassed if their father had done nothing in the war"

People were also a major influence in men's decisions to enlist.
Kantorek influenced Paul
and his classmates by
preaching how they all have
a duty to their country.

Remarque, Erich Maria, and A. W. Wheen. All Quiet on the Western Front. Boston: Little, Brown, 1929. Print.

Remarque is trying to show that older people whom we trust and respect can have a huge influence on our decisions as well.
Guilt that women wanted to enlist more then men also acted as incentive for them to enlist.

Socks were beneficial to troops, however this was more to generate a feeling of patriotism then to support the troops.
Women were also encouraged to be nurses. The first poster shows how being a nurse is just an extension of motherhood, while the second poster plays on women's desires for a career, and other opportunities.
They could buy saving stamps, which were similar to liberty bonds. In this poster, Uncle Sam is teaching young boys and girls a lesson on patriotism and saving.

Even Children were encouraged to help in the war effort.
Children were also encouraged to 'enlist' in the United States Garden Army where they grew food. This was seen just as patriotic as fighting alongside the army.

Men enlisted in the army because they wanted the opportunity to travel the world and go places that they, otherwise, could have never visited.
Men also enlisted in the army if their friends were going to go with them so they could have an unforgettable experience together.
In Italy, this propaganda-filled book, and others like it, were read at school. They "glorified war, patriotism, and the spirit of sacrifice. "
Men joined the army to receive glory and be a part of something unforgettable.
They also joined the army because they had a duty to their country.

All Quiet on the Western Front
"'... There are more lies told by the other side than by us," say I, "Just think of those pamphlets the prisoners have on them, where it says that we eat Belgian children."' (page 206).
We never really realize how the other side feels about what is said about them in propaganda.
After what happened in Belgium, the Germans were propagandized as monsters.
While propaganda about the horrors of Germany's actions in Belgium motivated many to fight, Paul helps us realize that those 'German monsters' on the receiving end of all this hate are humans too, and just following commands.
Propaganda, recruitment, and enlistment is unique to WWI because without all three, many people would not have wanted to enlist in the war, and civilians wouldn't have been as willing to support the war efforts.
The role of propaganda in winning the war did not go unnoticed. In his novel, Remarque also mentioned how propaganda influenced people's decisions to participate and support war efforts.
