BACK HOME by Bill Mauldin


Email this review


The return to the status of ordinary citizen- and the reflection of things ""back home"" as he found them,- the American Legion and other veteran organizations; problems of anti-semitism, racism, the United Nations, the Atomic Age- and the people they do not represent. He talks about Soviet Russia and the waste of the reservoir of good will Russia had earned during the war. The text is fascinating reading, disturbing, challenging, a shot in the arm for discouraged liberals whose difficult road he shares. He says things that need to be said- and he illustrates them with the humor, irony and skill of his cartoons.
