JUNGLE WAR STORIES "Requiem for a Red..."

We go from World War II to Vietnam...
...the period before escalation, when our troops were just advisors to the South Vietnamese, who were doing the bulk of the fighting.
It's the old "I tricked him so he'd discover how brave he really is for himself" plot, transposed to the early Vietnam era.
Most publishers simply adapted WWII or Korean War plots with names and places changed, but a couple did do Vietnam-specific tales, especially in the late 1960s-early 1970s.
 From Jungle War Stories #1 (1962). Writer unknown. Pencils by Bill Fraccio. Inks by Tony Tallarico.

Until next time...
