During WWII, not only did posters continue to play their important role as vectors of motivation and patriotic fervour. They also appealed "to darker emotions such as anger at the human cost of war. The appeal of posters also lies in the use of familiar images and expressions. Graphic artists combined their skill with advertising copywriters to sway public opinion and unite people in support of the war effort. The posters’ effectiveness arises from complex designs of words and symbols to communicate, invite action and build consensus."

Free France was a political entity that claimed to be the legitimate government of France following the dissolution of the Third Republic. Led by French general Charles de Gaulle, Free France was established as a government in exile in London in June 1940 after the Fall of France during World War II and fought the Axis as an Allied nation with its Free French Forces (Forces françaises libres). Free France also supported the resistance in Nazi-occupied France, known as the French forces of the Interior, and gained strategic footholds in several French colonies in Africa. (Source: Wikipedia)
