Item Number: 5559
Title: Service above self...Medical Department United States Army
Artist: Jes Schlaikjer
Comments: Jes Schlaikjer was one of the finest artists producing WWII posters in the US. His great achievement is a very uncommon series of posters celebrating the different branches of the U.S. Army. This is perhaps the most desired of the set, featuring an Army medic administering a wounded soldier in a blazing battlefield. I am not aware of any other medical recruiting posters for WWII and this is very scarce.
Condition: A-, linen mounted, fine color, faint evidence of typical folds before mounting
