"A terrific collection... With a few chiaroscuro strokes and a wry caption, Mauldin cuts to the bone." – Los Angeles Times "Glorious... this loving collection... is essential reading for a nation in search of its Greatest Generation. Far from creating demigods among men, Mauldin argues, combat exposes humanity's most stubborn flaws... Grade: A" – The A.V. Club "Stunningly produced... The cartoonist's humanistic brush paintes a sober picture of war that a news camera can never achieve." – Print "An amazing and beautiful collection of more than 600 of his wartime cartoons." – Chicago Tribune "Willie & Joe is an extraordinarily compiled and presented tribute to Bill Mauldin, the two-time Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist who chronicled life in the U.S. Army from 1940 to 1945. There are many scholarly works written on the topic of World War II, and those books can teach us a lot about the war, but anyone who wants to feel what American soldiers felt during the Second World War should seek out Willie & Joe. ... For the man who was once America's most celebrated enlisted man, Willie & Joe is a fitting, and wonderful, tribute." – BiblioBuffet "There's a sad wisdom on virtually every page here." – The Austin American-Statesman "These gritty, essential cartoons — everything Mauldin published during the war that still exists is compiled here — are the real thing and then some. On at least one occasion during the war, the engraved plates were made from the zinc lining of caskets. That gravity and humanity is among the things that hit you most about these panels: even when every vestige of civility and society has been stripped away, Willie and Joe remain good and decent men." – NPR.org
