The harsh reality of battle is not often seen in recruiting posters for WWII. This Amos Sewell poster for 1945 depicts an injured solider, head bowed, with artillery shells framing his tired body. The slogan of "Miles of Hell to Tokyo" seems appropriate here, and it highlights the fatigue and languishing experienced at the waning years of the long war.


Amos Sewell (1901-1983) began his working life as a banker who took illustration classes at night. He went on to become one of the Saturday Evening Post's most popular illustrators, alongside Norman Rockwell. Sewell created many posters for the War Effort, and this is considered one of his strongest images from that era.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
