Propaganda leaflets have interested me for quite some time, even those used for US Army training purposes.  As such I've amassed a few interesting examples of the latter which I've decided to post.  

 

The first one is the front of a standard "safe conduct pass" trying to get Aggressor soldiers to cease resistance. From what I've learned on the 'net concerning General William Hoge (the Gulf Theater Commander on the leaflet), I believe this dates to the early 1950's.

Cool piece, I like aggressor stuff too.

the flags is a 48 star, so that certainly makes it pre-59!

And here's another leaflet aimed at the Aggressor Forces.  There's a bit of water damage, but I'm happy that whoever it was who saved it didn't decide to throw it out.

 

(Note how the Aggressor "Field Marshall" is being basically being wined and dined.)

And yet another leaflet aimed at the Aggressor Forces soldier.  Again, there's some water staining.  First, the front part of it.  (Note the distinctive Aggressor Forces helmet sitting at the soldier's feet.)

Here's one of my favorites.  From what I've been able to gather with internet research, I believe this to be from Operation Longhorn which took place in 1952 in Texas.  The training exercise simulated an enemy occupation of an American town complete with propaganda newspapers, leaflets urging residents to rise up against the invader, pretend arrests of local officials, etc  (Think "Red Dawn" except without Patrick Swayze. :) )

And here's another one although I don't know whether it was aimed at the "good guys" or the Aggressor Forces.  First the front.

Those are really cool! Who would have thought that they would play this game so deep to produce this type of propaganda? I try to capture aggressor stuff when I can. Thanks for posting it. I doubt many exist!

Of course, the "good guys" can't have all the fun in designing leaflets for use against the Aggressor Forces.  Here's some for use by the Aggressors against the good guys.  First, the front.

And, last but not least, here's a safe conduct pass issued by the Aggressor Forces for use against the good guys.  First, the front.  (Note the official Aggressor Forces logo in the lower corner.)

That is nice stuff. I have about 40-50 of the same type of training and war game leaflets. I like them a lot. Some used in Europe with German or Russian text.

Cool. If you get the chance, post a few here. I'd love to see them.
