The article features several icons which were used to instill the patriotic sense of various nations to rise up in times of war. The image of Uncle Sam was designed by James Montgomery Flagg when U.S. President Woodrow Wilson signed a war declaration against Germany and its allies on April 6, 1917. The contemporary British poster shares many characteristics with its American equivalent. The German recruiting poster, dating from right after the World War I, addresses the national populace.
