Exploring the Past: WWII Posters

A Visual Adventure


World War I was called "the war to end all wars," but even more horrific tragedies followed—events that impact the world even now.  The roaring twenties roared in, and roared out, and Bucknellians went to war, again.  Think about the poeple newscaster Tom Brokaw called "the greatest generation."  They worked together, and they won.  Think of the millions lost.  Think of the realities depicted in visual metaphors: Black and White could work and serve together—but only during the pressures of war. Rosie could rivet in her trousers only as long as war workers were needed, then she went back to work in her backyard rose garden.
