Battle Lines: WWII Cartoons by Daniel Fitzpatrick Second Installment Opens with Curator Tour

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning cartoonist, Daniel Fitzpatrick, chronicled the progression of WWII as it happened with powerful and poignant editorial cartoons.

The second installment focuses on examples made between December of 1941 and the spring of 1943.
