Classic MAD: Remembering General Patton on the Anniversary...

CLASSIC MAD DEPT.

Today marks the 69th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy. It was a major turning point in World War II and we are all indebted to the brave actions and sacrifices of those soldiers. We’d love to pay them a wonderful and fitting tribute...but as a poor substitute, we’re offering the cover and opening pages of our classic spoof of Patton from 1971.
