Punch Cartoons on WW2, The Second World War
(Wartime news report. Last published drawing by Pont)."Yes, of course, I listened to the news so that I could tell you when you came in. Now just let me get it quite straight...My dear, yes, it was all about some note-that we've sent to them-or was it them to us-which would it be? But it doesn't matter a bit which it was-the point is the dictators are simply furious-and yet there was something about them being jubilant about something. However, it seems it is going to shorten the war-I'm almost sure it wasn't lengthen it-anyway, simply by years-and years. So isn't it simply splendid!-or don't you think it is-or what do you think?"
