Some of the weirdest and most disturbing advertisements ever created are done so for military campaigns. They come in the form of propaganda leaflets, which are dropped by air or otherwise disseminated into a country or territory that is being invaded. Virtually every war since the beginning of the 20th century has produced these leaflets, which are also known as psyop or psywar propaganda. The intention is to use psychology and symbolism to influence members of the general population, inciting fear and compliance.

The following leaflets come to you thanks to the incredible archives of PsyWar.org; they are the most sinister psyop leaflets ever dropped:
