if you're a Mauldin fan or just want to capture the flavor of war from the GI's perspective, you need this book.
This is the second time I purchased this book; this time in hardback. The first time I left it in the waiting room of my clinic with a note, "Please read and enjoy but leave in the clinic." However, someone was tempted to take it elsewhere. I guess that is testimonial of sorts from whomever.
However,since Bill Mauldin was recently honored with a US postage stamp with Willie and Joe in the background, I thought it was time to replace the book in my personal holdings at home. I proceeded to add a first edition copy Up Front, Mauldin's commentary on the cartoons that he drew and the War to those holding. I also purchased a sheet of the commemorative stamps to place inside one to pass on someday to our kids and grand-kids.
I certainly would recommend both books and a copy of "Stars and Stripes "containing one of Mauldin's cartoons for anyone who has an interest in the era.
Bill had "the eye" as well as an ability to get to the root of what bothered most guys serving in the European theatre- which allowed him to poke fun at everyone, from the brass (including Patton) to the sergeants, and everyone in between. Every World War II historian, professional or amateur, should this little jewel in their library, as its an honest snapshot of the everyday grunt. Loved it!
