The Wolf (GI Wolf) The Book
(originally published 1945)
“Along with the jeep, the robot bomb, and Spam, the wolf in G.I. clothing will become one of historical mementos of World War II.
The most amusing testimonial to this wartime phenomenon is a dead-pan cartoon character who has been entertaining servicemen for a year and a half. His name is The Wolf. His face is familiar. The brain child of S/Sgt. Leonard Sansone.” (Life Magazine, 1944)
