Details: This poster is a war propaganda poster showing an Allied Forces soldier pushing a German soldier away from a frightened woman who is holding a small child in her lap. The German soldier has blood on his hands. Red flames rise from the ground in the background. The text reads: Halt the Hun! Buy U.S. Government Bonds, Third Liberty Loan.
War bonds are debt securities issued by a government for the purpose of financing military operations during times of war. War bonds generate capital for the government and make civilians feel involved in their national militaries. This system is also useful as a means of controlling inflation in such an overstimulated economy by removing money from circulation until hopefully after the war is concluded.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
