America Attacks
WTW Productions - c1983

Note:  This card set repeats the content of an information/propaganda set
that was printed on Dixie Cup lids in 1942 (followed later by a less-parochial
"United Nations Attacks" set later in the war).  Most of the cards mistakenly
attribute the year of the initial set as 1943. The unnumbered title card, not part
of the original set, states: "This series of 24 Military scenes, originally issued
on Ice Cream lids, has been produced in full color, size and format of the most
popular collectibles of that era, 'Picture Cards.' The scenes reflect in art, style
and text the national mood of the year 1942."  Cards are 2-1/2" x 3-1/8". 
Thanks much to Jan Burns Cederquist for the original checklist!
