This book of anti-war drawings by John Olday, with quotations by Marie Louise Berneri, was published in 1943 when the war was at its height.  It is full of sketches that show a widespread dissatisfaction of all of the states involved in the war and what it considered the old social order. Winston Churchill features in a number of the sketches as do the other war time leaders. A scarce title to find and in such nice condition.
