Joe Louis’ exploits in the ring have been often chronicled, but they
were certainly equaled by his participation in the war effort during
World War II. Louis enlisted as a private in the Army and lent his
name to countless exhibitions and fund raisers for the war effort.
Louis also lent his image to the Army for this promotional poster
used to instill pride in the American effort. Louis is pictured in
uniform with rifle in hand and is quoted, “We’re going to do our
part….and we’ll win because we’re on God’s side”. Printed in the early
1940’s this is the rare one sheet (26” x 42”) version. This paper
poster has been professionally linen backed. The poster is clean and
exhibits almost no flaws except some very light fading. Exceptional
