Description:
told by David Ayre ; pictured by Roland Davies. | English. | Exhibited, April 23, 2010 through July 11, 2010, in "+5: Recent Acquisitions from The Wolfsonian Collection." Book, Air War at Sea by David Ayre, c. 1943/ Illustrated by Roland Davies (British, 1904–1993)/ Published by Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd., New York/ The Wolfsonian–FIU, Gift of Pamela K. Harer, XC2007.03.17.31. Books as well as board games and puzzles produced by both democratic and totalitarian countries played an important role in the numerous wars campaigns of the early twentieth century. They were a means to enlist even the youngest members of a nation in the broader cause of the war effort and build the allegiance of future adult citizens to the state. In some books, children are depicted as actual combatants; in others, young readers are encouraged to actively support the war through participation in scrap drives or by saving coins to buy victory stamps. Many of the children’s propaganda books exhibited here were donated by Pamela K. Harer to The Wolfsonian–FIU. The Harer Collection comprises more than one hundred children’s books primarily from the First and Second World Wars and the Cold War era.
