This collection is a good read, and an out-of-the-ordinary illustration of the realistic war-comic genre, as not all tales have a happy ending. The stories go back to the early 1950s, before the introduction of the comic code. Myself, I enjoyed greatly the early art work by Russ Heath, of which this volume has four stories.
As a pattern, the first stories, from 1952, exclusively chronicle the Korean War, the forgotten war. Moving into 1953, the stories become more varied, touching on both World War II and the Cold War.
