    One thought on “Cartoons of World War II”

    1. I m not sure that I can put my finger on why I didn t like Cartoons of World War II .The book presents what were essentially propaganda cartoons from various countries on both the Allied and Axis sides and, as such, represents a good cross section of how the war and its personalities were perceived But I wanted examples, description, biographical details.For example, here is a description of one of the cartoons from 1941 This was Stephen s take on the realities facing Germany despite the enc [...]

    2. An incredible collection of war time cartoons from a range of cartoonists, supporting the axis as well as the allied forces Not only did Churchill send the English language to war, the cartoonists too did their own part in raising morale or demoralizing the opponents This book is beautifully curated and presented and really drives in the feelings and realities of each stage of that dreadful tyranny.Two gems that I must highlight are one by Dr Seuss yes, of Cat in the Hat fame and E H Shepard who [...]

    3. This book provides a nice exhibit, curated carefully by year with enough notes and translation to provide context.Not exhaustive, but representative It provides a neat sort of play by play of some of the war s developments, and there are a few notes of interest about the cartoonists themselves.For a U.S reader like myself, the European focus gives some great perspective Of course, it s only one book, and I ll admit it left me wishing the volume was a little larger or somehow comprehensive But I [...]

    4. The book is wonderful, and Husband s writing is fine The only problem is that I wish this was in a larger format and in color In addition, it would be great to read of cartoonist biographies However, if you are just diving into the realm of WWII propaganda art, Husband s work is a great place to start.

    5. Rishi BahriCore ReadingForm I Green 2 4 15 The book Cartoons of World War II was made by many cartoonist around the world, but Tony Husband brought together some of their best drawings, about World War II, and edited them forming this book Cartoons of World War II shows the reader how something as simple as a cartoon can have such a great affect on a society in many ways Each cartoon in this book takes place in Germany, during World War II, and they describe the truth behind Hitler and the rest [...]

    6. Cartoons of World War II displays different cartoonists take on WWII, often in the form of propaganda It represents both of the Axis and Allies point of view, offering a well rounded look at the war and the circumstances leading up to it the book is organized by year.The downside of this large collection is the lack of information provided with the cartoons if you don t have, at the very least, a fundamental background in WWII and the political and social situations of the times, the cartoons la [...]

    7. The problem with a collection like this is obviously its finite size What s here is excellent a wide representation of cartoons from the US, Germany, Russia, and especially England on the gathering storm in Europe and the awful course of that storm, but the collection is perhaps too determined by the shape of history s outcomes so some of the flavor of the contemporary environment is lost It would have been nice to see some of the many cartoons from the US, for example, opposing Roosevelt s Euro [...]

    8. very interesting collection of ww2 cartoons you can learn a lot about what people are really feeling by looking at cartoons and also track how this differs by country and as time progresses would have given 5 stars if cartoons from 45 on were included it gets very sparse here perhaps cartoonists were tired by then and wanted to move on to other subjects other reviewers have noted the limited historical commentary and language issues i found interpreting the cartoons based on my knowledge of ww2 [...]

    9. It was highly interesting, but the small captions by each cartoon did not do the raw material justice There was no analysis of the opinions expressed, most details in the pictures were unexplained, and there was no context for most events Someday, I d really love to read a history of some war or period of time as told through political cartoons but with actual analysis by a historian.

    10. Loved seeing old cartoons about the war I ve seen a lot and this shows you some that haven t been seen in the US Below every comic was something the author added in and they gave little to no insight on anything Most of the comics were in a different language and they weren t explained well enough.

    11. I believe that it is important to remember the devastation and fear of WWII Some of the problem with politics today is a lack of knowledge of the past Analysis of the cartoons of the day shed light on the situations.

    12. An interesting look at the political cartoons of several countries during World War II Some of it is terrifying, while some is rather amusing It illustrates a form of propaganda that is often overlooked.

    13. Before the advent of internet and social media, cartoons were one of the most powerful and important medium in moving mass opinion It sends a powerful strike to both motivate the allies and strike fear into enemies heart My only regret to this book that it is too short.

    14. It amazes me that through cartoons, how much people did see Hitler for what he was, even before the 1940 s Great peek into history.

    15. CARTOONISTS rule the world It is great to see so many talented artists architects respond to the call.Great art along with an incite of the progress of the war.

    16. very interesting If you re interested in WWII history this book provides insights that no other book can I wish it was a bigger book

    17. I liked getting to see the different editorial cartoons, but I think it would ve preferred different and better commentary.
