Product Description:
Britons "wants YOU" Join Your Country's Army! God save the King

This classic world war propaganda poster features the famed Lord Kitchener (British Field Marshal Horatio Herbert Kitchener or 1st Earl Kitchener). He was a legend within the British army that won fame mainly after the victoriy in the battle of Omdurman in the second Boeer War.

During the first world war Lord Kitchener became Secretary of State for War. He was the first member of the military to hold this post and was given the task of recruiting a large army to fight Germany in what seemed to be getting a more prolonged war than most initially thought. This world war propaganda poster was published on the front cover of the hugely influential London Opinion magazine on 5 September 1914. The poster was a success and led to an immense recruiting success for the British army.

This poster is one of the true classics of vintage propaganda history.
