In 1915, Germans torpedoed and sank the British oceanliner RMS Lusitania. Of 1959 passengers, 1198 died, including women and children. The loss of 128 American lives stimulated anti-German sentiment and led the United States to declare war. This iconic "ENLIST" poster design, with its hauntingly beautiful illustration and 1-word message, brilliantly emoted sorrow and outrage, then prompted action: young men prepared for war.
