World War I, or The Great War, was monumental for ingenuity, strategy, and also cruelty. Due to the advances made during the Second Industrial Revolution factories could produce weapons and machines in capacities never seen before in human history. Tens of millions of men signed up to join their respective armies to fight for sovereign and country. The need for great numbers in the war presented nations with the challenge of convincing as many men as possible to enlist for near-guaranteed death in the war. The solution was in propaganda, and because of this no aspect of life went unaffected by the war. 

British propaganda posters were a popular form in the recruitment campaign as well as soldiers' journal magazines from British commonwealth countries during the First World War. The posters were primarily distributed in Britain during the First World War in an effort to secure the public morale required for victory. The magazines were primarily distributed in fronts where the respective targeted audience were most present. An example of this is the publication distributed to Canadians during the battle of Passchaendale (1917), a major battle in which many were present.   

These encouraged citizens to join the war effort in one way or another. These sources take different approaches to accomplish their goal. This exhibit will illustrate some of the tactics that Britain used when publishing propaganda. The narrative here is that every subdivision of British society was accounted for in this grand political recruitment plan.
