Date: 1940s Size: 21 x 31 Notes: Poster Artist: Anonymous About The Poster: This is an exceptional, and exceptionally rare poster. The heading reads "To the French people - France has lost a battle but it has not lost the war ... A moving notice to encourage patriotism and pride, with an inserted paragraph in English which reads To all Frenchmen: France has lost a battle but it has not lost the war! A makeshift government may have capitulated, giving way to panic, forgetting honor, delivering their country into slavery, yet nothing is lost! Nothing is lost because the war is a world war. In the immense universe, forces have not yet been brought into play..." Another copy of this poster was recently auctioned in Paris for close to $1500. In excellent condition, never framed, never folded, the poster measures 21 x 31 inches. This poster was part of a private collection.
