Abstract: Propaganda has been part of people’s lives throughout the world from the ancient times and it has played a prominent role in most if not all major historical events that have determined the course of history, with one of the most important ones being the Second World War, which affected the lives of an unprecedented number of people. This thesis is going to briefly look into what constitutes propaganda and the forms that it can take and give a historical representation of its evolution through time. Subsequently, the specific cases of propaganda use and the various means employed by Great Britain and Nazi Germany during the Second World War are going to be analyzed. During World War II propaganda had been extensively used by all the countries involved but the cases of Germany and Britain, which ended up violently clashing with one another and whose decisions and propaganda campaigns played a major role in both the beginning and conclusion of the war, are of great interest and importance. The goal therefore is to present the propaganda used by these two major forces in relation to the goals that each country aimed for throughout the war effort and to then deduce whether their campaigns and efforts were effective and thus successful.
