Sicily Sketch Books

I have five copies of Mauldin’s Sicily Sketch Book listed on this website. Four of the books are signed by many different soldiers, while the fifth book was used by one soldier as a reportage of his surroundings, commenting on what he has seen while in the Mediterranean Theater. It is a fascinating account of his observations.

Below is a blurb from the February 5, 1945 issue of LIFE magazine, which touches on Mauldin’s importance to the soldiers during WWII:
