The War And Human Freedom [translated into 13 languages]

Washington DC: [Office of War Information, ca 1942]. The Office of War Information, the U.S. propaganda arm during WW2, engaged in extensive leafleting campaigns to spread the message of democracy to allies and enemies alike. Secretary of State Cordell Hull's celebrated 1942 radio address, "The War and Human Freedom," is here presented in a series of thirteen tiny leaflets, probably meant to be dropped from airplanes but also distributed by information officers on the ground in allied territories. The widespread broadcasting of Hull's most famous speech made him one of America's best-known diplomats and likely contributed to his receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in 1945. These pamphlets are quite scarce; no title is represented by more than a few institutional holdings in OCLC, and the majority are unrecorded. 13 staple-bound miniature chapbooks, each approx. 2-3/4" x 2-1/2", each 40-45pp. Glossy pictorial wrappers with uniform design, each with a title in a different language. Included are editions in Portuguese, Danish, German, Italian, Finnish, Hebrew, Dutch, Flemish, Greek, French, Arabic, Farsi and Urdu. Fine condition.
