This is from a collection of extremely rare News Agency "window" posters from the Soviet Union. Posted daily in shop windows of Moscow after the German invasion started in June 1941, TASS posters were intended to rally support for the war, and later the post-war, effort.

Artists of these posters utilized a broad arsenal of visual strategies to both incite and inspire - from vicious satire, to potent slogans, to undiluted horror and hatred, to patriotic historical parallels.

The collection at International Poster Gallery features intricately hand stenciled TASS panels dating from March 1943 to late 1946 as the scales slowly tipped in the Soviets' favor, and beyond the armistice. Due to their rarity and historical value, the group of 45 panels will be sold as a collection.

This panel reads:

Now from Crimea, now from Rome - The beaten enemy retreats. With the hoise of lies and a cloud of smoke He covers his every step.

Who hasn't heard the saying: "All roads lead to Rome?" But we would like to now propose To replace it with another.

The beast crawls to its lair. Now, too, there is just one way. All trails, all streets, All roads lead to Berlin!
