In times of crisis, Americans come together as one. Old Glory proudly waves from porches up and down our streets; the Stars and Stripes fly above buildings in great metropolises and small town squares. Camaraderie becomes commonplace as the country unites to defend its freedom.
Lavishly presented, United We Stand! is a visual journey of the inspirational images that boosted the morale of our Armed Forces men and women and inspired those at home to support the war effort. It also is an important memorial to lives lost during all wars, and a reminder that liberty for all must continue to be a privilege worth defending.
Collectors recognize the importance of patriotism as a collectible, as these icons of World War II rapidly disappear into private collections and museums around the world.

A special section offers suggestions on how and when to display the flag, a timeline of significant events of World War II, and patriotic questions and answers.
In keeping with the theme and intent of this book, the publisher will donate a portion of the proceeds to the American Red Cross in honor of those who lost their lives to terrorism - and those who worked relentlessly to save others.
A decorated U.S. Navy veteran, Richard J. Perry is a longtime collector of illustrated graphics from the 20th century. Beginning with a core group of early calendar art, Perry has expanded his collection to include war-related items, such as magazines, newspapers, advertisements, posters, pin-ups - in short, any and all print material expressing America’s patriotism.
