I love Willie and Joe. I bought the book a while back. My fave is the one where one turns to the other and says, "You saved my life earlier. Here, you can have my last pair of clean socks."

The brass hated the comic. The dogfaces loved it. That says volumes.

Patton demanded Mauldin to stop drawing the officers in such a negative light and said that it destroyed morale. Eisenhower told him to stop his complaining.

According to Mauldin, t was Patton and his officers who destroyed morale...

My Granddad had an autographed copy of one of the original books of his comics from when they were all compiled after the war. I found it as a youngster in the early 70's, and enjoyed them then, eventhough I didn't understand a lot of them at the time.
