Up Front by Bill Mauldin is one of the most famous books to emerge from the Second World War, a classic in every sense of the word. In his drawings of the infantry dog-faces Willie and Joe, done while he himself fought in campaigns in Sicily and Italy, Mauldin created the immortal archetypes of the American fighting man. He knew, as one who had been there himself on the front lines and in the slit trenches, drenched with mud and rain, that Willie and Joe - with their unshaven faces, their gallows humor, their fortitude, and their dislike of privilege and cant - exemplify something enduring and surely noble about Americans at war. He knew their gripes, their fears, their jokes, and their opinions, and he recorded their talk with the most pungent accuracy. As for the timelessness of this book, David Halberstam puts it best: "One senses that if a war reporter who had been with Hannibal or Napoleon saw Mauldin's work, he would know immediately that the work was right". This new edition of Up Front is being published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II. It reproduces the exact design of the interior of the original 1946 edition as well as its front cover art. Up Front endures today as a piece of living history and a potent reminder of the sacrifices made by the men who fight our wars, whether that fighting takes place in Italy or France or Korea or Vietnam or the Persian Gulf.… (mere)

The best book about war I've ever read, and the drawings are excellent. ( )

This a collection of Mauldin's cartoons was done for the 45th Infantry Division and then for the soldiers newspaper, Stars and Strips. All were based on his experiences in Italy with the American infantry and accompanied in this book by his comments that give the background on what inspired him to draw the cartoon. This volume top the best sellers list in 1945.

He created two characters for his drawings who were known as Willie and Joe. They represented the average GI and his hardships fighting a war as a foot soldier but done with humour in this drawings. ( )

This is a gritty, absolutely real account of life up front during World War II, written, cartooned and published during the war. The version I read was especially wonderful because the paper was extremely thin,cheap material, showing the era when it was printed.

I've seen Mauldin's cartoons before, but didn't understand many of them until he explained them here. His is the rawest, most straight-forward description of life as a U.S. "dogface" (infantry soldier) during WWII that I've ever read, but is of course prejudiced, since he too was a doggie and sufffered alongside them in the wet foxholes.

If it had just been the writing, without the cartoons to illustrate them or to discuss, it wouldn't have been as enjoyable or special, but together it was fascinating.

The quintessential collection of WWII soldier cartoons. Funny and touching, and filled with the difference between dust and mud. They can both be horrible, and bring one close to suicide. The text, also by Mauldin is fresh and immediate. If America had been as receptive to his later book, "Back Home", it would have found a compassionate voice for the 1950's. As it is, do read "Up Front", but not at a single sitting. This kind of art requires savouring. Then find a copy of "Back Home"! ( )
