This WWII poster was created by the Canadian Government. It depicts a real showdown that occured between Canadian Naval forces and a German U- Boat off the coast of Haiti. On August 28, 1942 the U- Boat approached the Royal Canadian Navy's U-45 and two crew members came aboard to try and overtake the vessel. The crew of the 'Oakville' bravely fought them off and became a success story of the Caribbean campaign.

The artist of this poster is R. Hubert Rogers (1898-1982). He was a Canadian-born artist who served in WWI and left for a time to study in America at the Art Students League of NYC and work for editorials such as the New York Times. In the interwar years, he grew his career as a pulp fiction artist. When WWII broke out, he returned to Canada and created posters for the war effort.
