United Nations at War
WTW Productions - 1983

Note:  This is another neat set that reprints cards that originally appeared
on "Dixie Cup" ice cream lids; the reprint version is on 2-1/2" x 3-1/8" cards.
From the title card: "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 1944."  Thanks much to Jan
Burns Cederquist for the original checklist!
