Poster illustrates the ccoperative bonds forged in wartime.  A spare Pratt & Whitney Wasp engine is pictured being loaded aboard a U.S. Transport Command Douglas C-47B Skytrain in the British protectorate of Iraq. This Douglas Skytrain is itself powered by two Pratt & Whitney Wasp engines. American airpower did indeed help the British repulse General Erwin Rommel as he made his final push to get to the Suez Canal and the oil beyond in 1942 when this unusual poster was printed. Poster is now quite rare. 19x25 near mint, conservation backed.
