Falkland's war
« on: September 26, 2015, 02:42:19 PM »
During the Falkland´s war, some combat rations box  had in their pamphlets inside as having been packaged by "Argentine hands," demonstrating the support of the civilian population to war.
I want to know if this kind of messages can be considered as part of psychological warfare and if there were similar cases of delivery leaflets "in hand" in others conflicts.
Thanks

I don't think so. To really be propaganda it should be authorized and supported by the government. Postcard collectors have propaganda which was prepared by one government for use against another, and then they have patriotic cards, which are just prepared to help the morale of their own people. I would certainly collect this item and add it to my Falklands collection, but not so much as propaganda as "patriotic note prepared by an Argentinian civilian to booster the morale of a soldier at the front." I love the note.

The military, long pressed by leftists, began a sincere campaign of psychological warfare directed at all sectors, including the military, in 1968 with their manual - RC 5-2 Operaciones Sicológicas.

This continued in earnest during the "Dirty War," 1977 - RE 9-51 Lucha contra elementos subversivos

These are available for download in Spanish at:

If you don't speak Spanish I can send you my notes in English.

This psychological campaign had its origins in the French school of COIN. Furthermore, the nationalism of the Junta was especially focused on soldiers, the notes in the rations were most likely placed there upon government orders... even if they were, they can be seen as at least a by-product of years of nationalism and remember that the flow of nationalist sentiment is not a one way street.
