With grenade blasts in the background, a unit of American soldiers are in the thick of battle in this 1943 war bonds poster by John Newton Hewitt, entitled "They're Fighting Harder Than Ever." Painted with an emphasis on patriotic colors, the text urges the viewer to buy war bonds to support the soldiers pictured above. The poster was created during the time span of the Second and Third War Loan Drives. The Second War Loan Drive lasted 20 days, from April 12 through May 1, 1943 which raised $18.5 billion. The Third War Loan Drive lasted 23 days, from September 9 through October 1, 1943 and raised $19 billion.

John Newton Hewitt (1885-1958) was an illustrator and fine arts painter. During the depression he illustrated many painted covers for pulp fiction books. This commercial painting style is evident in many of his World War II poster creations. He continued in the graphic arts with artwork for Colliers and Liberty magazines. He also developed a successful fine arts career in portraiture and landscape painting that idealized the mid-century American lifestyle.
