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!
