Editor Steve Holland has picked a particularly fine bunch of stories, with scripts by a team of writers and editors who in most cases had direct experience of the conflict they were writing about. The stories are just as gripping and engaging some forty plus years on as they were when the were first published and again as with the previous collection the heroes and protagonists are frequently men trying to come to terms with their own personal demons as much as they are fighting the enemy.
These are stories therefore with real resonance which coupled with some really superb and atmospheric artwork plunges the reader right into the seat of the action.
The stories themselves are by and large from the first three years of the comics run spanning 1961 - 1963 and again, there are no credits published, which is a pity, however I'll reprise a list of the contents with the appropriate name checks:
Fort Blood - Battle No.22 - Art:Jose Ortiz - Script:Unknown
Killer At Large - Battle No.7 - Art:Jose Bielsa - Script:Donne Avenell
The Fire Eaters - Battle No.96 - Art:Gino D'Antonio - Script:H.K. Bulmer
