In this World War l poster we view the vivid image of the American soldiers , bayonets drawn, charging the enemy forces. The image is very skillfully executed by the artist Howard Everett Giles and one can sense the action on the battlefield and the energy of the troops. The poster urges the viewer to support the efforts at home to supply the troops with the ships and armaments that they need to speed them to victory.
Howard Giles ( 1876 – 1955) was born in Brooklyn, NY . He studied at the Art Students League in New York City and succeeded in building a career as a painter, illustrator, and art teacher. Much of his work appeared in Harper’s Magazine and like many of his contemporaries during World War l he assisted in the government’s efforts to create effective and spirited poster designs.
