Chinese propaganda posters

PLA march -- on a series of propaganda posters!


My motherland -- the best song in the 1950s, can you believe they banned it during the cultural revolution just because that line about young girl?

The original (Shang Gan Ling) movie version runs sort of a parallel with my favorite German song, in that they both played a role in maintaining morale at a critical time. The German fought for their honour and the Chinese fought for their homeland. We hope nobody needs to do this again.
