BATTLEFIELD ACTION "Christmas, 1944: Bastogne"

The "Battle of the Bulge" was, in reality, many battles... the Germans launched a desperate all-out counter-attack from December 16th, 1944 to January 25th, 1945, on rapidly-advancing Allied forces.
This is the story of one of those battles...
There are no writer or artist credits available for this never-reprinted tale from Charlton's Battlefield Action #20 (1958).
Until next time...

WAR AT SEA "Pearl Harbor: the Day of Infamy"

It's December 7th, seventy-one years since... let's have a look back at a story illustrated by a veteran who served in the US Navy during WWII!
Illustrated by ex-swabbie Sam Glanzman, this tale from Charlton's War at Sea #26 (1958) exhibits Glanzman's clean storytelling skills and amazing knack for accurate, authentic, renderings of military equipment from ships to aircraft and uniforms.
His best-known military comics work are the autobiographical graphic novels A Sailor's Story and A Sailor's Story Book II: Wind, Dreams & Dragons, about his WWII service on the destroyer U.S.S. Stevens.
Until next time...
