Mauldin's classic portrait of the World War II combat soldier is being reissued in this facsimile edition to coincide with the 50th anniversary of V-E Day on April 29. Though Mauldin was known for his cartoons of dogfaces "Willie" and "Joe," reviewers praised his prose, with the New York Times calling Up Front a "vigorous, brash, youthful but excellent book."

It's an interesting history of the War (WWII) almost as it was going on and what Bill Mauldin was seeing and feeling. Mauldin had a way too of communicating what the average GI was feeling even to those who may never have worn a chevron.

This is an army cartoonist/correspondent's classic from World War II. I have several of Mauldin's book and they are all good. He was also one of the stars of the 1951 movie "The Red Badge of Courage," which may be the greatest war movie ever made. Audie Murphy was the main star in the movie, and rightly so.
