Comedy as a "weapon" against Enemies like Disease:

Malaria is not ever funny but humor as used in this collection of posters was a powerful weapon against WWII enemies like disease especially malaria and the Anopheles mosquito that carried it because it was an effective educational tool for the young people that comprised our troops. Posters and calendars were important tools in the war time campaign against disease but history shows that advances in science such as the development and use of synthetic antimalarial drugs and residual insecticides like DDT were greatest weapons to malariology during World War 2.

General Douglas MacArthur, United States Army May 1943.

Quinine Treatment

Early in the war a campaign in the prevention of malaria was initiated. A synthetic malaria preventive drug sold under the name of Atabrine was distributed to American troops stationed on the South Pacific islands. Complaints against the yellow pills were common. Atabrine was bitter, appeared to impart its own sickly hue to the skin. Some of its side effects were headaches, nausea, and vomiting, and in a few cases it produced a temporary psychosis. Although Atabrine was an effective antimalarial preventive drug but it was an effort to get the troops to take it.
