    Poster, color, 20 x 30 in., printed for H. M. Stationery Office by J. Weiner Ltd., London. Prior to World War II, British citizens had for many years been the most highly taxed wage earners in the world. Yet from the beginning of the war to March 1943, the British people had put over twenty billion dollars into war savings. The popular campaigns of the war - Spitfire Funds (1940), War Weapons (1941), Warships (1942), Wings for Victory (1943), and Salute the Soldier (1944) - encouraged donors by pointing out specific items their contributions could purchase, much as the War Savings Bonds campaigns in the United States. The economic importance of these savings campaigns in Britain lay in their anti-inflationary effect. World War II. 16 History; 13 Science, Technology and Society; 14 Political Systems. less
