Za Prochnyi mir! Protiv Podzhigatelei Novoi Voiny! [For a stable peace! Against those who would ignite a new war], 1949
1949 saw the creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), designed to confront the possibility of communist aggression with Western unity and firmness. Churchill favored the new organization, which he said indicated "a very considerable advance in opinion as far as the United States are concerned." This Soviet poster shows stalwart marchers for peace--"Against those who would ignite a new war"--as an alarmed Churchill and moneybag-clutching Uncle Sam look on.
