This is an original 1942 offset lithograph poster from WW II. This is considered one of the most highly collectible posters from World War II. "Someone Talked" portrays a drowning service man beyond your help as he points accusingly.
This is one of a large group of posters, and surely the most visually striking, which warned against careless discussion of the whereabouts of troops and ships, many of which were being sunk by German U-Boats.
These posters were displayed in shipyards, Army and Navy posts, waterfront bars, restaurants, public buildings and gathering places; and wherever there was danger of spies or saboteurs.
The poster is in good condition, minor folds can be seen due to the poor linen backing job, but still one of the greatest posters created! This is poster #18 printed from the Office of War Information (OWI) in Washington, D.C. Artist: Siebel
