In 1943, with the world convulsed by war and a Fascist defeat in Europe far from certain, a few visionaries--civilians and soldiers alike--saw past questions of life and death to realize that victory wasn't the only thing at stake.

In the midst of the conflict, the Allied Forces appointed the monuments officers--a motley group of art historians, curators, architects, and artists--to ensure that the great masterworks of European art and architecture were not looted or bombed into oblivion. The journalist Ilaria Dagnini Brey fo... View more info

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.
