WW2 Propaganda Aviation Art Prints. Very Rare Prints made by the Japanese, for propaganda purposes in WW2. This print shows the bombing of New York City.
Propaganda and Psychological Warfare were, and still, a very powerful weapon against the enemy or even for building morale or swaying the opinion of one's own country. These are some prime examples of building morale for the Japanese Soldiers and the Japanese people in World War 2. Drawings like these were also made to bring unity and military war support to the civilian population of Japan. The painting below shows Japanese bombers dropping bombs on New York City, an icon of American Industrialization. Click Here for the Main Aviation Art Gallery

The Capture of Guam Island, December 10, 1941 The morning of December 10, 1941, Imperial troops carried out the landing on Guam in the face of the enemy and soon overran the enemy’s garrison. By December 12, we had finished mopping up and completely captured the island. Guam was attacked before being fortified. If fortifications had been completed, it would have been impregnable. This picture shows the scene of a naval brigade landing on a northern beach of Guam and advancing. (11) WAPA232

Tsuguji Fujita, painter dispatched by the Navy of Japan In the grey of the morning on December 8, 1941 (Showa 16), the Japanese Imperial Navy dared the great attack on Pearl Harbor Navy Base with a do-or-die spirit. Then we sank five battlewagon, two light cruisers and one tanker, greatly damaged three battlewagon, two light cruisers and two destroyers, half damaged one battlewagon and four second class cruisers, destroyed more than four hundred sixty planes and the Air Force of the Hawaii district. At this naval battle our special attack unit organized of special purpose midget submarines terrorized the enemy’s fleet, dashing into heavily guarded Pearl Harbor and attacking by storm the main forces at the same time as the vigorous attack of our air corps and carrying out a night attack by themselves. The picture portrays the complete view of Ford Island in Pearl Harbor and the enemy’s fleet and the armaments of the enemy being consigned to the grave around the island. (20) WAPA215

The Landing upon the Aleutians (Attu, Kiska) June 7-8, 1942 Imperial Navy Troops made a surprise attack on and captured Attu and Kiska at the western extremity of the Aleutians, and flew a sun flag over American territory. One year after that, in May of 1943, an American large troop attacked Attu with many ships and mechanized units. Our garrison counter-attacked hard against the enemy that was superior to us in numbers. Then at last they occupied the island and our Yamazaki troop died but never surrender. The picture shows brave warriors of our naval brigade landing upon the American territory making a naval ensign shine. (25) WAPA212

To Seek for the Enemy
Click Here to look at the
The B-24 Liberator was built in a factory called Willow Run in Detroit Michigan. The factory was built by Henry Ford and designed by Charles Sorensen. The willow run factory was named willow run because is it was built on the willow run creek. This is interesting because the last person to live on the willow run property was Warren Benjamin Kidder. I have spoken to Ben, personally, and he is one of the nicest people that anyone could ever meet. Ben wrote a book called Willow Run, Colossus of Industry, a book about the production of the b24 liberator, military bomber. When the factory was in full production it produced a B24 liberator every 56 minutes. This factory is one of Henry Ford 's greatest achievements. You can read more about this fantastic, very well written book by ing here and going to the Willow Run B-24 Liberator Production Exhibit.
B-24 Liberator Units
of the Pacific War
Born out of an approach made by the US Army Air Corps to Consolidated for a bomber with superior performance to the B-17, the Liberator was built in record numbers as the Allies' most abundant heavy bomber. From the first to see combat, the B-24D, to the ultimate Liberator, the heavily modified PB4Y-2 Privateer, all navy versions are featured in this, the first of four volumes on the B-24 family.
B-24 Liberator Nose Art Name Directory
Forman. A companion to the same author's B-17 nose artand name directory. This volume details the Group, Squadron, serial number and photo availability of over 9,000 WWII B-24 Liberators. Great for the historian, researcher and model builder. 32 pages of vintage photos. 8½"x 11", 192 pgs., sfbd.
A must for B-24 Liberator Buffs! Wally has expanded his format to include data on AF Wings and their component bomb groups for most of the USAAF. His B-17 Nose Art Directory was concerned with the 8th, 15th, and 20th AFs. And rather than searching the total list for group aircraft he has listed the a/c assigned to each group by group number. Definitely a source book for important data (names, serial numbers, photo availability) on this aircraft.
