A graphic history of the Second World War as drawn by contemporary cartoonists on all sides of the conflict, this book presents over 300 cartoons, arranged chronologically from the rise of Hitler in the early 1930s, then year-by-year from 1939 to 1945. With work by artists such as David Low, Osbert Lancaster and Vicky in British newspapers and propaganda publications, Karl Arnold in Germany's Simplicissimus and 'Kukrynisksi' in the USSR, the book demonstrates the undiminished power of the medium to comment on war.
