"Strengthen the Combat Might of the USSR!" poster, printed on 23 June 1941, one day after the German invasion of the USSR. Large size, 35" x 22 ¾" overall. A very impressive artwork implores workers to produce more for the Red Army. This and several other known Soviet propaganda posters from the first days of the war had been clearly prepared well in advance. Typically, they showed the Red Army on the offensive and had little or nothing to do with the defense of the country from invaders. This fact seems to support the theory that the Soviet Union had been planning to attack Germany all along and was simply preempted by the equally aggressive Nazi regime.

Measures 17.5" x 22.5". In very good to excellent condition.
