Collects #7-11, 1952-53. Our Highest Recommendation. By Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Davis, Wally Wood, John Severin, George Evans, Alex Toth et al. Legendary writer/artist/editor Harvey Kurtzman collaborates with some of the greatest comics artists of all time, in addition to creating his own solo stories and covers. Here are some of the finest war stories ever told, covering the history of warfare, from Caesar and the Civil War, to WWII and Korea! Toth's "Thunderjet" is considered a highpoint of the artist's work and a rare appearance at EC. But Davis, Wood, Severin...they are all at their finest here. Anti-war stories that are still as readable as when they were first written.

Legendary writer/artist/editor Harvey Kurtzman collaborates with some of the greatest comics artists of all time, in addition to creating his own solo stories and covers. Here are some of the finest war stories ever told, covering the history of warfare, from Caesar and the Civil War, to WWII and Korea!

Anti-war stories that are still as readable as when they were first written.

Iwo Jima; The Caves; Mopping Up; Chickamunga; Night Patrol; First Shot; Front Lines; Bull Run; Geronimo; Bayonet Drill; Anzio; Rough Riders; Afgan Border; Lufbery; Sailor...the story titles say it all.

In these classic EC tales, we are taken to War in the true grueling and horrific light that few comics of the time dared to show! Bill Gaines was justly proud of the EC sci-fi titles, but Kurtzman  would have been quick to point out, story for story, art for art, the war titles were probably EC's very finest hour. They are amazing.

Introduction by Grant Geissman, Foreword by Ray Fawkes.
