Scope and Contents Note

The collection contains propaganda leaflets distributed in Europe and in the China-Burma-India Theater of operations during World War II. Produced by the U.S. Office of War Information, leaflets were dropped from planes inside enemy territory and in countries invaded by the enemy. Propaganda leaflets, pictorial newspapers, and "gift drops" were widely used to weaken enemy morale, encourage the resistance, and befriend the people from the occupied countries. Collection includes translations of most Asian language material.
