Let ‘Em Have It is a 1943 World War II American public service announcement for Bonds supporting the Fourth War Loan.Bernard Perlin's artwork places the viewer right in the thick of battle. The soldier's outstretched arm reaches across the composition as his hand clutches a live grenade perfectly placed at the text "Buy Extra Bonds."

The Fourth War Loan Drive began on January 18 and ran until February 15, 1944. The initial goal was $14 billion. The final sales were $16.7 billion ($227.2 billion today accounting for inflation), with nearly 70 million separate bonds sold.

Bernard Perlin (1918-2014) is best known for his World War II posters as well as his long career as a fine artist working in the Magic Realism style. Perlin attended the New York School of Design and later the Arts Students League. Shortly afterward, he began work for the Office of War Information and later served as an artist correspondent for Life and Fortune magazines. His wartime posters are well known and highly collected including his "Let ‘Em Have It" and "Americans Always Fight For Liberty."

  • 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.
