Asian Propaganda at the British Museum

I visited Stockport Air Raid Shelters a while ago. In the west, we read about World War One and World War Two from the western perspectives. This post from Fran takes us to the same World War II, but you get to see the war from another perspective.

Propaganda flourishes in wartime, and the Asian Propaganda exhibition at the British Museum has plenty of examples from Japan’s twentieth century wars – with China (1894-5), Russia (1904-5), Korea (1905), China again (Asia-Pacific War 1931-1945), when Japan occupied Manchuria, and America and its allies (World War II 1941-1945). A sad start to the twentieth century, but a rich source of propaganda art.
