Description - Dr Suess Goes To War by Richard Minear

The best-selling treasure trove of World War II-era political cartoons by the creator of the Cat in the Hat - now in paperback! Few know the work Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, did as a political cartoonist during World War II for the New York daily newspaper PM. The extraordinary cartoons savage Hitler, Japan, Stalin, Mussolini, and "isolationist" leaders such as Charles Lindbergh. They exhort readers to give full support to the war effort, put up with shortages, buy U.S. savings bonds, and help control inflation. An introduction by Richard H. Minear, historian of the era and author of Victors' Justice, place them in context and illuminate the national climate they reflect.
