A fascinating archive of propaganda posters used to boost the moral of British soldiers and citizens during the Second World War has emerged for sale.<br />
<br />
Among the collection are rousing images of Allied desert tanks destroying their Nazi opponents, marine commandos storming an occupied village and RAF bombers striking German factories.<br />
<br />
Others feature the capture of a German U-Boat and a British navy cruiser broadsiding an Italian submarine.<br />
<br />
The scenes are accompanied by equally stirring messages reassuring that “the fall of the dictators is assured” and that Great Britain was the “defender of liberty”.<br />
<br />
Many of the posters were destined for display overseas where troops had little idea of how the Allies were faring against the Nazis overall.
