The German Air Sport
Calls You


Like the previous example, this poster by Ludwig Hohlwein gives no

Although numerous historians have attributed the Nazi attention to air sports as a clear desire to instill military virtues into young Germans, there is little evidence to support such a conclusion. Here, the glider is totally unthreatening, more of an open frame than a real plane, and the boys involved are clearly enjoying their joint accomplishment rather than any military achievement.
