Propaganda, Censorship and Irish Neutrality in the Second World War

In 1943, the Allies turned the tide against the Axis in Europe. Germany was defeated in North Africa and went on the defensive in Russia, and the Allies defeated Italy and intensified their bombing raids on Germany. America and Britain had to consider Irish-American opinion when making policies regarding Eire neutrality. Film propaganda dissemination expanded in 1943. American film making now began to include Ireland. The film censor showed no signs of softening on US or British films in 1943. It was acknowledged that broadcasting was a well-established propaganda channel into Eire. In 1943, the Allies made major inroads into the Axis domination of Europe, Germany did not defeat the Soviet Union and went on the defensive in North Africa, and Italy effectively collapsed, becoming no longer an Axis partner but rather a German-occupied nation. Clearly, the tide of war was turning.
