Visualizing Allied Hopes and Fears

There's a great exhibit of British artwork and propaganda online, which accompanies an exhibit on display at the National Archives. I do find the way they categorize the works to be truly bizarre. Given the close ties between governments and media at times of war and the intense unity of purpose felt during WWII, how 90% of the images collected in the "Illustrations" and "Valour and Gallantry" sections are not also "Propaganda" is beyond me.
