KOKOREKIN, A. Let's Finish the German Fascist Invaders in Their Lair!, 1944

Dob'yom nemetsko — fashistskikh zakhvatchikov v ikh berloge! [Let's Finish the German Fascist Invaders in Their Lair!], a poster by Alexei Kokorekin (1906-1959, Meritorious Art Worker of the Russian Federation). Iskusstvo, Moscow, 1944, 82 x 57 cm.

Allied Forces are approaching the German border, and the final phase of the war is now in sight. Interestingly, the artist automatically assumes that it will be the Red Army's task and honor to capture Berlin. Formally, Allied Powers made this decision in February 1945 at the Yalta Conference.
