My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An excellent volume in the Marvel Masterworks series! This one features some very well-written and poignant war stories, very akin to the EC Comics tales of the day and the later masterpieces of Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert.

You’ve got a Who’s Who of fifties’ artists here, too: Joe Maneely, Don Rico, Ogden Whitney, Werner Roth, and even early stories by more humor-centric artists like Dave Berg, Jack Davis.

The stories are set mostly during the Korean War (which was going on at the time of publication), but they span the years and cover many salient points about war and the human condition.

A very good read on all counts!
