There are few things I find more interesting than Military History. The days of Winston Churchill during World War II were a terrible time; one that brought death and destruction throughout Britain. However, it brought a significant unity, accomplished under Churchill’s watch, against the aggressive Nazi foe. Where Barter Books ties into this story – they rediscovered one of these uniting mechanisms of the era; the Keep Calm poster. It is an exceptionally well put together 3 minute snippet of history that ties in what the poster’s purpose was, other lesser known posters and the quaint bookstore this all emerged from.
The three posters included:
- KEEP CALM and CARRY ON
- Freedom is in Peril – Defend it with all your Might
- Your Courage Your Cheerfulness Your Resolution WILL BRING US VICTORY
Enjoy “The Story of Keep Calm and Carry On,” I did!
