Irony And Tension : Perception of War in Ankara and Istanbul During the Second World War Years
Irony and Tension” should be read as a visual guide to Turkish perceptions of the Second World War, how these perceptions
differed in style and to the propaganda materials of the era. It examines how many different types of effective and eclectic visual
propaganda images were used by the Single Party Regime to direct the masses during the war—military albums, official
bulletins, community center publications, postal stamps, popular culture and comic books, all designed, printed and distributed
within the country.
