During WWII, the need for American troops superceded the traditional draft conscripts. Congress passed special legislation to allow women to serve in four units: the Women's Army Corps (WAC), the Navy Women's Reserve (WAVES), the Marine Corps Women's Reserve, and the Coast Guard Women Reserves (SPARS).

This well-illustrated poster highlights a brave woman representing each of these special branches of the military. The program was groundbreaking and paved the way for women to serve in the military in peacetime.

Harry Steele Savage (1900 - 1970) was an American illustrator most known for his children's books. His typical style was radically different than this poster - most works feature a pen-and-ink style reminiscent of Kathe Kollwitz or Rockwell Kent. The illustrative and colorful style used in this poster demonstrates Steele Savage's broad range of talents.

  • 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.
