DOD Propaganda


As generally understood, propaganda is opinion expressed for the purpose of influencing actions of individuals or groups... Propaganda thus differs fundamentally from scientific analysis. The propagandist tries to "put something across," good or bad. The scientist does not try to put anything across; he devotes his life to the discovery of new facts and principles. The propagandist seldom wants careful scrutiny and criticism; his object is to bring about a specific action. The scientist, on the other hand, is always prepared for and wants the most careful scrutiny and criticism of his facts and ideas. Science flourishes on criticism. Dangerous propaganda crumbles before it.

What is this site about?

I have keen intrest in all things World War Two (WWII), I am also a keen online gamer. When one night I came across the idea of using real propagnada ingame, I never thought that I would spend so much time and effort researching and gathering resources. I got a little carried away and this site is the product of that.

I am always on the look out for new sprays to do, I already have a few which I should have added to the collection but have not found time. Just to let you know, I am aware that not all the posters are from 1939-1945, some predate that by over 20 years however I have used my own discretion on their validity. ie. if I thought it was too cool to exclude I put it in anyway. :-P

I hope you enjoy the site and the fabulous poster art!
