This is a thick 400-page paperback book. It collects the war comics cover art from mainly the 1960s. These archives are from the Air-Ace, Battle, War and War at Sea Picture Libraries. These comics ran over four and a half thousand issues.
The paintings are all traditionally created. They are wonderful and captures the intensity of the war. The choice of colours and composition are great. It's also interesting to see the titles of these covers like "Night of the Devil", "Snarl of Battle", "The Jungle Has Eyes", "Courage Beyond Price", etc.
The subjects are mainly the soldiers, of course. There's a huge section on fighter planes and the navel warfare. There are very few tanks though. Every piece is properly credited to the artist.
For those into drawing war-related comics, this would be a very useful resource.
