"Buy Bonds!"

Let 'Em Have It - Buy Extra Bonds

"Let 'Em Have It - Buy Extra Bonds"

Bernard Perlin, 1943

War bond posters, familiar to Americans who had lived through the first world war, once again appealed to the public for support to buy bonds and win the war. 

By the end of the war Americans had purchased over $185 billion in war bonds and more Americans had contributed to government bonds than any other nation involved in the war.
