Very nice!

Was there a specific instance of someone claiming this relationship was meaningful?

Yes. And let me quote

from Glenn Beck Shock-doc wrote:When I made the film, I was expecting actually that there would be similarities between the Nazis and Soviet communism, but I was actually amazed to discover how similar where these posters, and the posters were so similar that as if for one artist had drawn them. Of course, I think it is because , it is because they were both, the ideologies were very similar and their expression, therefore, was very similar as well.

what exactly was the similar ideology between soviet communism and Nazism apart from perhaps socialism ?
there is also striking similarities with the American propaganda , i would rather say that the ideologies are not that of the individual parties/nations shown here but that of similar ideologies based on the situation of war, solidarity, security , etc......

Not entirely relevant, but nonetheless interesting...

From Japanese subways, the theme is manners. From '76-'82

There's some really cool sci-fi posters (well, vehicles of the future) on http://pinktentacle.com/ too. It's a cool blog.

After 40 examples, i thought it would be a bit hard to find more, But here's another one, note this seems to be a poster for Fahrenheit 451 rather than a war poster

example no41.

Perhaps. Obviously the writings and images of communist posters are much more aggressive:

1)example 5, "avenge December 7th" vs Russian "Fire the murderers of our daughters and wives"

2) on ammunition poster where the poster in English says "keep 'em coming", Russian poster says "people and army are unstoppable".

3) on example number 21, Russian poster says "Our cause is just, the enemy will be crushed", while the USA goes on with "keep 'em coming"

4) example 32, "Revenge the sorrow of your people" against "we talk about sacrifice"

5) example 38

I imagine how strikingly effective these posters were. Makes me a little uncomfortable to watch them, to be honest.

p.s. not sure if this is reliable but http://seekingalpha.com/author/james-quinn/instablog scroll down 1/3 of the screen. It's just a quick article from google, but at any rate I highly doubt it's real.
