As Burt wrote in the introduction: “This book…these cartoons, the words that accompany them…have a much deeper purpose than to deride and reveal our recent enemies”…”this is NOT A WAR-BOOK, although most of the cartoons were drawn in the time of war. This is a PEACE-BOOK; a book for the parlous years that follow upon war…”
