[artist unknown]. U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1943. 28 x 20.

Conservation of the nation's forests in wartime was the main focus of posters commissioned by the Forest Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This poster is a good example of one artist's conception of the monstrous dictators of the Axis alliance as hateful despicable creatures through a mere caricature. Ridiculing the enemy and rendering him ominous were universal poster propaganda techniques.
