Description
During World War II, the truest glimpse that most Americans got of the "real war" came through the drawings of 22-year-old infantry sergeant Bill Mauldin. Week after week, Mauldin defied army censors, German artillery, and Patton's pledge to "throw his ass in jail" to deliver his wildly popular cartoon "Up Front" to the pages of Stars and Stripes. His wisecracking, stoop-shouldered characters Willie and Joe bore eloquent witness to the experience of the rank-and-file infantryman in the war—and gave such men a chance to have a laugh at their superiors' expense. This taut, career-oriented biography of the two-time Pulitzer Prize winner includes nearly 100 Mauldin cartoons.

"Surprisingly, this is the first biography of Bill Mauldin, and it is more than worth the wait, presenting in words and pictures (Mauldin's, and what pictures!) a mid-20th-century life that reads like Huck Finn transplanted."—Jules Feiffer

"This book celebrates the life of Bill Mauldin, who contributed mightily to a fulfillment of one of the most difficult chores in human relationships—helping us to understand ourselves, and doing it in perhaps the most difficult of all media with humor and satire."—Walter Cronkite
