During active American involvement in World War II (1941–45), propaganda was used to increase support for the war and commitment to an Allied victory. Using a vast array of media, propagandists instigated hatred for the enemy and support for America's allies, urged greater public effort for war production, persuaded people to save and recycle so that more material could be used for the war effort, and sold war bonds to fund the war.
