The truth was one of the most powerful and prolific weapons used in WWII. By distorting, suppressing, or releasing it, morale fluctuated and battles were won and lost. Radio was a primary vehicle for the dissemination of information, both true and false, and played a significant role in WWII. Similarly, propaganda played its own major role in the war and in truth. Radio was used to propagate, but eventually employed the technique of propaganda through advertising.
