After being hidden for six decades, this collection brings previously unpublished material to light, presenting an assortment of entertaining political commentary. Chronicling the period leading up to World War II as well as the war years themselves, each of these editorial cartoons are accompanied by an introduction and a brief essay identifying the major players, placing them in historical context and providing fascinating details related to the progress of the war while emphasizing its impact on Canada. Refusing to flinch from the horror of combat, these caricatures also manage to demonstrate the heavy price paid by civilians and military personnel, displaying a scathing characterization of the Axis powers while illustrating the belief that the Allies would inevitably prevail. Allowing war to be viewed through a lens of subtle humor, this medley is an important posthumous contribution to the literary world.
