Propaganda Posters - Russia

Russian Tsar Nicholas II (right) with King George V Russia entered World War One on 1 August 1914 but did not remain until the conflict's ultimate conclusion in November 1918.

The February - and then October - Revolutions of 1917 directly led to Russia's departure at the war, albeit at the cost of a punitive peace treaty (at Brest-Litovsk).

Given the vast manpower resources at Russia's disposal - the Russian steamroller as it was commonly referred to - the government did not need to resort to recruitment posters.

However propaganda was produced to encourage public investment in government bonds; and in the early Soviet era in decrying prominent anti-Bolshevik figures.
