World War I poster entitled, "Over the top for you - buy U.S. gov't bonds, Third Liberty Loan," suggests the sacrifices American soldiers were making as it urged financial sacrifice of civilians.

The phrase "Over the Top" was used throughout the war to describe soldiers going up 'over the top' of the trenches to charge the enemy.
