Sex and Psychological Operations

 Jap surrender leaflet

Swing over here and read a fantastic study on how sex was used in propaganda by most of the belligerents in WWII.  Herbert A. Friedman brings us a great insight on how numerous nation's PsyOps were trying to sway the common enemy grunt in the trenches with outrageous stereotypes and serious depictions of what could be happening at the homefront. 

A great look at a part of WWII we don't hear much about,

"In walked a man in a soldier’s uniform…"
