Ways the U.S. got men to fight back for their country
Much can be learned about a society's values from how it handles the raising of an army. In wartime, nations typically clarify the terms of citizenship and service-asking some people to fight, others to stay home, and appealing to the public for participation and support. The government sets the term of service, but they must align with popular values to be successful.
Technique and Persuasion
In order to get the strong men of the United States to help the war effort in Europe, the government would not only set taxes and bonds to pay for the machines like rifles, tanks, etc. But, they would also get propaganda posters up everywhere in order to persuade the men to fight for there freedom and survival.
Propagandists employ vague, sweeping statements (often slogans or simple catchphrases) using language associated with values and beliefs deeply held by the audience without providing supporting information or reason. They appeal to such notions as honor, glory, love of country, desire for peace, freedom, and family values. The audience that was trying to be reached in this kind of flyer are the hard working men and women who could help pay for the materials needed to end the great war.
