There are some.

  1. on a 3rd picture Japan is simply presented as dragon. And on 4th Japan is of course manipulated by fat British, tall American capitalists, isn’t it???

  2. LOL the writing on the standards in the 5th picture looks like moon people writing, you can tell they had no idea how to draw kana.

  3. That defeat was a huge loss of face for Russia, because that racial stereotyping was widely believed. That belief held that Asians were racially inferior, and therefore not capable of defeating ‘Western’ nations millitarily – that’s why the Japanese are pictured as being puppets of Western captialists, how else could they wage a war on Russia all by themselves?

  4. On behalf of all the Americans fighting for peace during WWII, I thank all Russian veterans that joined us to end WWII. –Danny Greene

  5. The USA was the only Ally country that joined in the end of the war. The USSR has fought since 1941, and 70% of German troops were stationed on the east front.

    The US has met least resistance and least casualties, while also having most money, the strongest economy and the most powerful industry from the very beginning.

    Funny how you say the US joined at the end of the war as if we made no effort ..
    It ended so quick because of us.. Imagine the outcome had the US not joined in to help stomp the Nazis. You might be speaking german today. Just think about that before you go slinging mud in our face. Remember, the Germans weren’t invading america but we still came over and helped protect our neighbors, but as usual… nobody thinks about the good things we do.

    Sorry man, but he’s right. The USSR lost like 10 million people in WWII – and they have a population smaller than the US. I don’t know if they still do this but Russian weddings used to have a part in the ceremony about the losses in WWII, which they call the great war for liberation or something like that.

    The Nazis collapsed primarily due to lack of resources to sustain their land grabs, as what resources they had were used fighting the Russians. The Russians kept them out of the Caspian oil fields, which made a huge, huge difference.

  8. Those posters are funny when you consider the fact that the Japanese had crushed tsarist Russian army without any serious resistance

    • Hey Entombed, hate to be a net ‘troll’, but what you wrote isn’t exactly true. For one thing Port Arthur held out for about nine months and cost the Japanese enormous casualties. For another Admiral Von Essen’s cruiser squadron from Vladivostok preyed heavily on Japanese merchant/supply shipping, causing the Japanese some serious worries. Finally, although the Japanese won the major land battles at the Yalu, Liaoyang, and Mukden, they were not decisive wins. The ‘knock out blow’ they were looking for never happened. In fact a major reason Russia got such a favorable bargain at the Portsmouth peace accords was because the Japanese were running out of men and money and substantial Russian reinforcements were finally starting to arrive in Manchuria.

      BTW all, love the propaganda posters, especially ‘Mother Russia’ and the evil Japanese dragon! lol

  9. The japanese were better equipped primarily due to western powers. I like the fourth one best where russia is depicted as this giant with a huge cannon and england/us/china are supporting the japanese in the war.
