The “Let’em have it – Buy extra bonds” war bonds poster was used in the U.S.A during World War 2 to encourage those at home to buy war bonds. The poster depicts a heroic soldier on the front line about to throw a grenade into enemy territory. Smoke and barbed wire are in the background.
The poster was designed by Bernard Perlin who is well known for contributing a number of posters to the War effort during World War 2. This includes the famous “Americans will always fight for liberty (1778,1943)” poster. After the war he focused on other art forms such as his magic realism paintings.
War bonds played an important role in helping finance the U.S. World War 1 and 2 war effort. They were sold to those at home using a variety of advertising means.
