Naval War College Review

Volume 67, Number 4 (2014) Autumn


Willie and Joe, perennial characters in Bill Mauldin’s famous series of World War II cartoons produced at the front in the European theater and published in the armed forces newspaper Stars and Stripes, react to the full realization of their just-ended predicament in the Anzio beachhead. They would have been even more appalled had they been aware of the archival research, especially bearing on the German preparations for and response to this 1944 Allied amphibious assault, that informs Dr. Milan Vego’s analysis in this issue.

The cartoon appeared in Mauldin’s first book-length collection, Up Front, published in 1945 and never out of print since. The Library of Congress is a good resource on his long career as a writer, editorial cartoonist, and even candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives—see www.loc.gov/rr/print/swann/mauldin.
