Summary
"With classic war stories from some of the biggest creators of the Bronze Age of comics and cover art by the incomparable Joe Kubert, Showcase Presents: Men of War collects all twenty-six issues of the beloved 1970s wartime anthology series. In 'Code Name: Gravedigger' by Jack C. Harris, David Michelinie and Dick Ayers, Ulysses Hazard joins the war effort to stop the Axis threat, but because of his race is denied assignment to combat duty. Like his fellow black soldiers, Hazard spends the early days of the war scrubbing latrines and burying the dead, until he storms the Pentagon to prove his worth, impressing the commanders enough to earn a new mission and a new name: Gravedigger. Elsewhere, the honorable and knightly Rittmeister Hans Von Hammer defends the skies of Germany during the battles of World War I. The famed German fighter pilot known as 'Enemy Ace' portrays the other side of World War in stories by Bob Kanigher, Howard Chaykin and Ed Davis. Plus, in 'Dateline: Frontline' from Cary Burkett and Jerry Grandenetti, 1940s journalist Wayne Clifford reports from the war-torn corners of the world in dispatches from Britain, North Africa and Mother Russia." -- Page 4 of cover.
