French Propaganda Posters During The Great War
French Propaganda Posters during WWI
By Billy Watson, Daniel Hanson, and Anthony Orza
Military Recruitment
"They Shall Not Pass"
The adjacent poster is a call to arms to express France's determination to defend its country from the invading Germans.
The line was most famously used during the Battle of Verdun by French General Robert Nivelle citing the need to defend Paris and France from a possible German victory.
In order to hold the line, troops were needed at the trenches. This poster is not only a call to arms, but a glorification of the soldiers that are fighting in the trenches.
Vilification of the Enemy
French Industrial Production
Agricultural Production
"The Credit for the Liberation"
Here, Germany stands alone against a collation of nations. Germany is sick and pale, and his sword is broken, reflecting his defeat at the hands of the Allies.
The poster is intended to motivate the home front and keep morale high among the French people.
The reality of the poster displays the collation of Allied Powers that are helping France repulse the German invaders.
Here, the French display a factory producing war materials.
The impact of the poster is directed to displaying the need for an efficient mode of production to create equipment for the war effort.
By increasing the efficiency of war production, the French government would be able to mobilize more supplies to help break the stalemate on the Western Front.
"Cultivate our Kitchen Garden"
The message displayed by the poster is an appeal to French civilians urging them to grow there own food during the war.
This reflects the French government's need to ration food to help with their war effort.
If civilians grew their own food, then the surplus food can be sent to the soldiers in the trenches.
France was invaded and the poster reflects the need for a total commitment by the French people to repulse the Germans.
