The posters painted by the artists of the "Battle Pencil" association fully reveal not only the theme of the difficult war against fascism, but also reflect the courage and stamina of Soviet soldiers and citizens working for the benefit of victory. The legendary publication of propaganda posters aimed at briefly and clearly explaining the defenders and residents of the besieged Leningrad about what was happening at the front, as well as raising morale and inspiring confidence in the coming victory through caricatures of fascist invaders. The "Battle Pencil" gained popularity from the first days of the war.

When the Great Patriotic War began, members of the Leningrad branch of the Union of Artists decided to put in the fight against fascism. A few days after Hitler’s attack on the USSR, a sheet of the “Battle Pencil” “Fascism is the enemy of mankind!” Death to fascism! ”Appeared on the streets of the city. The posters not only called on Soviet defenders and residents to work for the good of the state even in difficult days, they also told amazing stories of the courage of soldiers at the front. Residents of the USSR learned from "Battle Pencil" about the exploits of partisans, railway workers, sailors, and believed that thanks to such defenders, the country would soon be able to sleep peacefully.
