How to use this source to help you answer the big question   *
Look carefully at this source and consider what it tells you about propaganda produced by the people and the press. You should consider:
* * *
* Ask yourself *
* * *
* What is the main aim of each advertisement? *
* * *
* How do the advertisers each link their products to the war? *
* * *
* Was this just a way to sell products or do you think it was genuine patriotism? *
* * *
* Historians point out that a lot of the propaganda produced in the Great War was not produced by the government or the press but was 'self propaganda' produced by individuals or businesses. Are sources 2a-c examples of 'self propaganda'? *
* * *
* Is it possible to check how far this kind of propaganda influenced people? *
