During World War II, the truest glimpse most Americans got of the 'real war' came through the flashing black lines of twenty-two-year-old infantry sergeant Bill Mauldin. Week after week, Mauldin defied army censors, German artillery, and Patton's pledge to 'throw his ass in jail' to deliver his wildly popular cartoon, 'Up Front,' to the pages of Stars and Stripes.

It traces the improbable career and tumultuous private life of a charismatic genius who rose to fame on his motto: 'If it's big, hit it.'
