Notes

This story is signed and dated 1967. This war story by Brocal seems unusual as he was mostly doing fantasy/sword and sorcery characters from the 1960s. He did work for Warren in the 1970s, including "The Mummy" series in Eerie. During his career, he did agency work for both DC Thomson and Fleetway, which may be the source of this story.
