The War That Gave You More

Monday Cartoon Day.

In the war years Theodore Geisel (better known as Dr. Seuss) worked inn California, doing military instruction films and stuff like that for the Signal Corps. before that, he had shown his wordly side by doing political cartoons for the leftwing New York newspaper PM. All of these magnificent cartoons have been collected a couple of years ago in a terrific book called Dr. Seuss Went To War by Richard Minear. he also has a website devoted to the same subject under the same name, which you can find here: http://libraries.ucsd.edu/speccoll/dswenttowar/
I still couldn't help showing you the few cartoons I found online, just because they are so incredably well made.
