Factors of the triumph of justice for the rights and freedom of the people

Description

This image, with its portraits of prominent politicians and military figures, appears in many publications produced during World War One. Different characters are depicted in different iterations, depending on the message. In this case, it is emphasised that, through the ‘word’ and the ‘sword’ of the characters represented, it will be possible to achieve victory, justice and freedom. In general the posters that have the allies as their theme are optimistic, especially those relating to America, whose entry into the war brought hope to many.
