These two posters both feature scenes of idyllic landscapes, with patchworks of brightly coloured fields illustrating the beautiful and bountiful countryside of the respective nations. The posters showed the public what was at stake in the war, encouraging them to increase their contributions to the war effort: the Canadian poster calls for the public to subscribe to a War Loan to help pay for the war; the British poster calls for recruits to join the military. Indeed, the British poster spells out the message with its text: Isnt This Worth Fighting For?
