  • [The] secrets of much-loved wartime cartoonist Giles [are] revealed in a new book . . . The cartoons that had kept the Reynold’s News readers laughing, including many of heroic Russians such as an amiable Joseph Stalin propping up a bar, or a doughty little peasant woman bringing in a clump of roped-up captured German soldiers – have been collected for the first time in Giles’s War.

  • The cartoons offer a vivid portrayal of the war, of Giles’s formative years and of a brief chapter in the history of co-operative journalism, when it boasted a future icon among its ranks.
