This poster is part of a series of images created by the United States Government Office of Facts and Figures to encourage Americans to support the Allied forces fighting for freedom. It shows a soldier from one of our allies,in this case Ethiopian,as he would look when prepared for battle. This patriotic World War Two Poster with a photograph featuring a friendly looking Ethiopian soldier was intended to help make some of our friendly war allies recognizable to the Americans at home in the United States. With American troops fighting on two fronts against the Axis Powers during World War II,the recognition and help of allies was essential. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is not mounted with subtle folds as issued by the U.S. Government and in excellent condition.
