This American First World War poster shows an image of German boots soaked in blood up to the ankles. This graphic image was employed in the service of fund raising. The United States entered the First World War in April 1917 and quickly adopted the European war-bond approach to raising money. The American government persuaded its citizens to lend it money through such high-powered publicity campaigns which utilised techniques of the newly developed public-relations and promotion industries.
