WWII Section

The Stars and Stripes was taken down after WWI until World War II, when General Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered its restart. Like Pershing, Eisenhow valued the contribution a newspaper would make to troop morale. During WWII, the newspaper was printed in dozens of locations ranging from London to Cairo, and a Pacific edition was created in 1945. Quite simply, the newspaper went where the troops went, finally following them into occupied Germany.
