New Zealand World War Propaganda

Propaganda influences the way people think by presenting a carefully selected (or constructed) version of the truth that exploits existing beliefs, asserts authority, appeals to patriotism, and/or evokes fear or humour. Symbols play an important role in propaganda posters because images are powerful transmitters of ideas, often appealing as much to our emotions as to our minds.
Propaganda poster were printed by the New Zealand government from 1915, and distributed throughout the country to encourage men to enlist.
