D-Day Special: TWO-FISTED TALES "D-Day"

For our D-Day memorial special, we present one of the coolest war comics tales ever!
"Why?" you may ask...
Read for yourself, then come back afterwards...
To answer the question "Why is this one of the koolest war comics tales ever?"
1) The troops don't fire a single shot. (Rocket-propelled grapnels don't count.)
2) It shows that, no matter how the higher-ups screw up, the American fighting man was (and still is) the finest soldier in history.
From Two-Fisted Tales #27 (1952) Story by Harvey Kurtzman. Art by John Severin. Lettering by Ben Oda. Color by Marie Severin.
Notes: Kurtzman, Severin, and Oda all served in the Army during World War II. Oda was a paratrooper.
