    This book did not storm the beaches at Normandy, but it looks like it might have, with its tattered dust jacket that seems to shred just from being looked at. In fact, this is the fifth printing of Up Front, from 1945, the same year as the book's copyright by Henry Holt. Mauldin's drawings of Joe and Willie have a 1944 copyright.

      Mauldin was a great cartoonist, loved by the troops but he rubbed some of the upper echelon the wrong way. I think Patton would have been happy to court marshal him. Didn't like the sloppy/undisciplined attitude he thought "Willie & Joe" portrayed. He thought They were bad for morale.

      Great book that captured the real life of the common foot soldier.
