War Bonds offer a truly unique glimpse of history in some of the world’s most dynamic and iconic periods. “These bonds exemplify the need for countries to raise money to start, maintain, and finish wars and to rebuild afterwards” says Bob Kerstein, CEO and Founder of Scripophily.com.
The ability to invest in war bonds allowed for citizens to support the cause and feel involved in their government’s military activities. “These costly wars contributed so greatly to the history and character of the world”, Kerstein added. Moreover the financial support by private citizens often coincided with the expression of pride and a sense of patriotism in supporting their initiative. The importance of war financing over the years has been a major factor in the ultimate outcome of the war.
