WWII USA Strong in the Strength of the Lord Poster


The “Strong in the strength of the Lord” poster was published in the U.S. during WWII, to foster greater cooperation between different segments of society, in this case, a woman, a factory worker and a soldier, all who played a key part in the U.S. war effort.

The 3 arms held aloft is more reminiscent of the Nazi or Communist propaganda posters of the time. The quote in the poster was taken from a speech made by vice-President Henry Wallace and the full text reads “Strong in the strength of the Lord. We who fight in the people’s cause-we will never stop until that cause is won.”

The poster was designed by David Stone Martin who was well known for his Jazz album illustrations. On the bottom is written: OWI Poster Number: 8 - U.S. Government Printing Office: 1942-O-488341. The condition is good except for a few small edge tears. The poster has been mounted and covered in protective transparent cellophane.
