About this title

Synopsis:

The author's descriptions of his experiences as an official combat artist during the Italian campaign are accompanied by his paintings and sketches

From Library Journal:

America's combat artists were surely the most unsung soldiers of World War II. Author Reep sketched and watercolored his way across North Africa and Italy in order to record the Fifth Army's activities for the Army Historical Section. In this informal and anecdotal autobiography, he proves to be as adept with a typewriter as with a brush. The book is amply illustrated with Reep's deft and curiously appealing drawings, typically late 1930s in technique. One wishes that there were more, and that the work of his fellow artists was also represented. Raymond L. Puffer, U.S. Air Force History Prog., Los Angeles
