Three ways:

1. Make young men go to war (posters talking of 'glory' and 'honor')

2. Advice people on how to survive during the war (grow your own vegetables, don't talk to strangers)

3. Turn people against the enemy (posters saying how bad and evil the enemy is, so people don't realise that the 'enemy' is just them but in Another Country)

What was propaganda in World War 2?

Propaganda was used as a military weapon and used to make people think, that the war is turning out good for that country. f.eks. before attacking a place you could yell in big speakers, that if you surrender we will let you live and that they were slightly outnumbered, so it would be a good idea to surrender. Under world war 2 the propaganda was a big factor, and it made many thousands of soldiers surrender. It was also necessary to have a good propaganda minister, who was good at expressing themselves. Germany's minister Joseph Goebbels was one of the best. In Russia, there is a poster of a Russian lady working saying "Do it for your Russian sister (or something along those lines)". Also the most popular work propaganda was Rosie the Riveter in her posters saying "We can do it!".Propaganda encouraged forces to do something, whether its fighting one another or simply working.
