Abram Games: the war designer who persuaded Britain with his posters
April 7, 2019
The National Army Museum’s new exhibition explores the work of the Second World War graphic designer and master of visual seduction, who created propaganda posters to boost recruitment, educate soldiers, and encourage civilians to contribute to Britain’s war efforts.
When war broke out in in Britain in 1939, fighting for your country was not really a personal choice. Conscription to the army was made compulsory for all men aged between 18 and 41 who were in good health, and anyone who refused on religious, moral or other grounds – conscientious objectors – had to stand in front of a court to make their case.
