Get Your Teeth Into the Job

This poster relies on humour to get across the message that hard work will ensure victory. Hitler is caught up a tree while a beaver, emblematic of Canada, cuts it down. Demeaning caricatures and cartoon images of enemy leaders were standard features of all sides' propaganda efforts.
