WWII Airborne Leaflets Exhibit

May 31st, 2014  |  Published in Arts Alive, Eureka Books, Feature

Starting June 7th, WW II aerial propaganda leaflets will be exhibited at Eureka Books.  Fliers were dropped over enemy territory as a form of psychological warfare.  Leaflets providing “safe conduct passes” also were dispersed, which enemy troops could use to surrender.  This form of propaganda was so popular with the Allied forces that one squadron of B-17 bombers was assigned to scattering pamphlets.  The show will run through the end of June.DSCN0943[1]
