Do you have any articles or statistics on the fact that those companies that continued to advertise during world war II were successful after the war; while many that dropped their advertising at war time, were less successful?

Dick, I don't have any stats on how companies fared during and after the war.

I do come across a lot of vintage ads from during WWII promoting consumer goods. Many have themes alluding to the war -- thrift, in particular, was often part of war-time ad concepts.

Term Papers

It’s great to see good information being shared.
