'Someone Talked' poster
Description: "Someone Talked," a 1942 poster produced by the Office of War Information that was designed to promote a sense of common purpose during World War II and discourage unguarded sharing of strategic information. It shows a drowning man, presumably a soldier, who points an accusatory finger at the viewer. Posters like these, generally commissioned by the U.S. Government, aimed to show civilians how they could contribute to the war effort through everyday activities and aid with the allied victory overseas.
