"The real war, " said Walt Whitman, will never get in the books. " During World War II, the truest glimpse most Americans got of the "real war came through the flashing black lines of twenty-two-year-old infantry sergeant Bill Mauldin.Week after week, Mauldin defied army censors, German artillery, and Patton's pledge to "throw his ass in jail" to deliver his wildly popular cartoon, "Up Front, " to the pages of Stars and Stripes. "Up Front" featured the wise-cracking Willie and Joe, whose stooped shoulders, mud-soaked uniforms, and pidgin of army slang and slum dialect bore eloquent witness to the world of combat and the men who lived and died in it.
