Dedicated readers and fans of Theodor Seuss Geisel, or Dr. Seuss, know of Seuss’s fascinating, long-forgotten career as a political cartoonist for the New York daily newspaper PM during World War II. Dr. Seuss, however, was only one of a number of distinguished cartoonists whose work appeared in PM. In Dr. Seuss & Co. Go to War, we discover an astonishing treasure trove of over three hundred incisive political cartoons by Seuss as well as a cohort of other legendary cartoonists of the time, including Saul Steinberg, Al Hirschfeld, Arthur Szyk, Carl Rose, and Mischa Richter. These fascinating cartoons offer a totally different picture of the war, both at home and abroad. Sure to fascinate and surprise readers across the generations, Dr. Seuss & Co. Go to War lets readers “time travel to a remarkable time when editorial cartoons really mattered” (America in WWII).

An interesting journey providing snapshots in history from times when U.S. involvement in the war was no foregone conclusion and later moments when victory was no guarantee.
