Printed in England by Alf Cooke, Leeds and London
As the war went into its fourth year with no allied invasion of Europe, there was a concerted effort to reassure not only the citizens of Britain, but those under Nazi rule. This poster, one in a series by the Scottish artist Donald Blake, printed in English , French, Italian, Arabic and Persian.
A wide variety of air and sea operations are shown, with large parts of Germany on fire from the bombing. "Night and Day the bombers of the R.A.F. strike deep into the enemy's war machine."

The Royal Navy assures Britain "a ceaseless and gigantic flow of supplies which will give irresistible power to the Spearhead of Attack when the time comes to strike."
