During World War II, a legion of star-spangled, flag-draped superheroes fought to defeat the forces of evil. Rediscover them now, when we need them most! This book paints a compelling history and presents the exciting, full comic book stories from some guys you may have never seen before: Miss America, The Fighting Yank, Super-American, U.S. Jones, Captain Freedom, Lady Liberty, Major Victory, Captain Courageous, Miss Victory, American Eagle, American Crusader, Uncle Sam (by Will Eisner) and many more!

Starting with The Shield and followed by Captain America, a whole battalion of red, white, and blue heroes appeared on the four-color page to help fight the Nazis. We need those superheroes again to battle for truth, justice, and the American Way!  These full-color comic stories from World War II tell of true role-models of the patriotic ideal. Their fascinating history and their stirring tales will both entertain and inspire new generations!

Proudly presented are action-packed stories from America's Best Comics, Fight Comics, Our Flag, National Comics, and a battleship full of other explosive comic books of the Golden Age! Illustrated introduction by editor Yoe.

Also includes work by the long neglected Max Plaisted, who worked in the early Nedor issues; Pierce Rice and Arturo Cazeneuve on the rare Fox hero, The Eagle; the very rare Fiction House hero, Super-American, who appeared in a mere handful of issues of the long running Fight Comics, drawn by Dan Zolnerowich and Lee J. Ames.

Also the always-superb line work of Paul Gustavson, here on Rusty Ryan from Feature Comics, 1942, plus earlier, even rarer work on Man of War from Liberty Scout Comics, 1941. Lin Streeter doing Pat Patriot from Daredevil Comics, 1942. Catman artist Charles Quinlan drawing his OTHER classic Golden Age series, Miss Victory. Another master of fine line who is little known today, Charles Sulton doing Major Victory from Dynamic Comics,1941. Ken Battefield drawing The Fighting Yank from Startling Comics,1945. A nice treat with Clem Weisbecker on Commando Yank from Wow Comics, 1942. Palais doing Captain Freedom from Speed Comics, 1946, and Captain Fight from Fight Comics, 1941. And the list goes on...great stuff!
