Propaganda is everything and, when a government can control the message, they can impact upon the mentality of the general populous. During World War II the British government were well aware of this, and so they re-established the "Ministry of Information" - the department that had been directly responsible for publicity and propaganda during the Great War. Between 1938 and 1946, the Ministry of Information sent out thousands upon thousands of propaganda posters to be displayed around Britain in order to increase morale, change public attitudes and encourage the public to join the war effort. Posters bearing such slogans as "Careless talk costs lives", "Dig for victory, and the now immortalised "Keep calm and carry on" were sent all over Britain, impacting upon the population's views. So here are 20 of the most iconic propaganda posters distributed by the British government during World War II.
