During World War II, many of the American peoples were terrified about the war coming on to United States soil. Homeland security was at a high concern in the standard American home. The War was a prime time for the United States military to get the average able bodied man to get to work and fuel the military power. The purpose of this propaganda was to get people scared into working for the government to produce weapons and war supplies for the troops overseas. The imagery displays Adolf Hitler and Emperor Hirohito surrounding the United States mainland as if they were going to conquer it. With the text “Warning! Our homes are in danger now!” was to frighten people and to increase the amount of production in the United States. This poster was also a campaign by the United States Military to increase
In Oceania, rumors, myths, ideas and false information controls the minds of the citizens. The Party uses propaganda as a powerful weapon against the citizens. There are many types of propaganda used. Propaganda is brainwash. The citizens of Oceania are brainwashed to think that the Party is really there to help them, to make them happy. “WAR IS PEACE.

Needless to say, every one of the wars just mentioned was advertised as a defensive, moralistic, and completely national expedition. Bismarck even went so far as to make an unworkable treaty with Austria so that he could claim, when Austria broke it, that he was waging war in defense of the sacredness of treaties. But no one should be deceived by such propaganda. All these wars were waged in order to maintain certain groups in control in the belligerent countries.
The Cold War was one of the wars that made everyone hold their breaths and ponder would would happen next and when. The Cold War was a time period between 1947 to1991 in which the Western powers (US) and the USSR competed with each other in a tense rivalry and strive to outperform one another. It was also one of the key moments in history which spiked a motive and drive to develop and produce new strategies, weapons, and technologies. There was no actual fighting which took place (hence the name Cold War), but the two were always trying to best each other. The two superpowers often contested with each other militaristically, socially, politically, and economically. With this in mind: what weapons were used to fight the Cold War?

During World War II, many countries used propoganda, a piece of media used to promote a purpose, to direct citizens attention to war efforts. Through the use of a variety of persuasvie techniques Great Britian was able to use propoganda to recruit citizens into the war efforts. This is due to the fact that ordinary people saw "everyone" contributing to a simple solution such as, working in a factory to build parts becuase they were inspired to have a say in how long the war would continue. Thus, the techniques that were used in propoganda proved to be effective during that time by persuading and inspiring people to contribute to World War II.
Propaganda was used by the government as a Mean to accomplish all their major objectives during the war.

American propaganda during WWI was used to spread ideas and information for the purpose of helping the American cause, specifically through, songs, posters, pamphlets and leaflets. America joined the Allies forces in 1917 in Europe to fight against the Central Powers. The American government needed something to spark the peoples' interest in the war.

Similarly, Germany fought back with her own propaganda, by purposely dropping leaflets and pamphlets on the ground to try and convince American soldiers, especially blacks, to join their side. In my opinion
No one anticipated the international chaos that would emerge during the twentieth century, especially the devastation caused by World War I, World War II, and the Cold War. World War II was the most destructive war in human history and changed the history of the world forever, engaging the world’s most influential superpowers in the largest international event of the era. World War II was fought not only by the armed forces, but also by the home fronts of every belligerent nation, exhausting the economy, the industry, and the morale of those living at home, escalating the conflict into a total war that was larger and fought more expansively than any other conflict in history. The use of American propaganda in the World War II war effort
There are two types of propaganda: sociological propaganda; the spreading of an ideology through the mass media, and political propaganda; efforts that are sponsored by governments and political groups that alter a persons’ interests. All propaganda has a direction, and the overall quality determines whether it will have a positive or negative effect over the masses. Our entire nation is a vast propaganda operational system that is greatly linked to education, consumerism and politics. A great deal of what makes up propaganda and how it is placed among the masses lies in understanding the overall emotional and physical states of these groups of people and in finding a way to draw a persons’ attention to capture their hearts, breaking down

The twentieth century has experienced one of the greatest changes in means of communication including technologies such as radio, motion pictures, the Internet, advanced communications and most importantly the television. Sadly, political leaders and the government to convince or persuade the masses that their ideas supercede those of others have utilized these technologies.
A quote by Joseph Goebbels goes as ‘propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own will.’ The poster presented follows the alliances and rebellions of the first world war. Through the use of the salient German flag, reference and association is presented so that it is made clear about whom this poster is in favor of, consequently the American flag plastered on the crouched soldiers refers to whom they are and what country they are associated with. The same is done with the swastika symbol placed on the helmet of the upright soldier associating him with the German nation. The body positioning and language of the cowered American soldiers creates an ambience of inferiority and oppression whereas the confident stance of the
