Publisher Description

“A deeply felt, vivacious and wonderfully illustrated biography.” —Clancy Sigal, Los Angeles Times Book Review

A self-described “desert rat” who rocketed to fame at the age of twenty-two, Bill Mauldin used flashing black brush lines and sardonic captions to capture the world of the American combat soldier in World War II. His cartoon dogfaces, Willie and Joe, appeared in Stars and Stripes and hundreds of newspapers back home, bearing grim witness to life in the foxhole. We’ve never viewed war in the same way since. This lushly illustrated biography draws on private papers, correspondence, and thousands of original drawings to render a full portrait of a complex and quintessentially American genius.Some images in this ebook are not displayed due to permissions issues.

iPhone & book fan ,

No comics on this e-book

You only get half the story without his cartoons. Why were permissions not granted even though this e-book was purchased???

NO ILLUSTRATIONS!!!!!!

I gave it a One Star because I could not give it Zero Stars. I thought when I purchased the book I would get the illustrations . . . Seems to me this should be disclosed. Not a happy camper. . . Falls into the "rip-off" category. DO NOT BUY!

Deception

A Bill Mauldin book with no Willie & Joe cartoons is a deception, a rip-off
