Do NOT Purchase E-book Version
I really enjoyed this biography of the iconic WWII cartoonist Sgt. Bill Mauldin, creator of Willie & Joe, composites of the American soldier fighting in Europe. While it's a great read, "due to permissive issues," none, absolutely none of Mauldin's artwork is published. Wouldn't readers have a right to expect to see the very art that defined the man?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I consider myself ripped off. To Barnes & Noble: If you can't publish an E-book in its full print version to include graphics, photos, etc., don't publish an e-version at all. I would appreciate if B&N would send me a gratis hard or softback version... one with all the illustrations.

Excellent, well done
Even though I heard his name all my life and saw many of his drawings; I never realized the scope and depth of his life and talent and the positive influence he has had in America [outside his war-time experience]. Anyone who can 'stare-down' Patton [and survive in tact] has great strength of character [and not a few friends in high places].Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If you have ever been 'talked to' by a four-star general in an unpleasant [for you] circumstance then you know first-hand of what I speak.
Too bad there is some sort of legal/publication restrictions in the eBook version that prevents seeing his work [but you get a glimpse of his talent on the cover].
He is a brilliant color in the [quickly fading] fabric of American history.
