"Broad Views"

Kin Platt was an established cartoonist prior to the war and continued his craft afterwards. While in the AAF in CBI he used his talent to draw Broad Views, a cartoon strip for the Hump Express, newspaper of the India-China Division of the Air Transport Command. The cartoons usually featured beautiful women, often in various stages of undress, usually discussing some situation arising out of a date with a G.I. The cartoons appeared in most issues of the newspaper. Fifteen of the cartoons are featured on this page.
