    I read Mauldin’s own collection of thse cartoons – called (wow what a surprise) [i]Back Home[/i].

    I wonder if this book retells Mauldin’s anecdote of the Army officer (who’d served with the Nisei units in Europe) on a PR tour in California who encountered a jap-hater?

    Accto Mauldin, the officer said that he didn’t want to make any trouble while on tour on the Army’s dime to make the Army look good…

    “…but I’m due for discharge in a month or so…”


    This does sound like an excellent and necessary book.
