There's a table of contents, a 3 page Introduction, a brief note before each story, and a 3 page acknowledgments which had two errors, one in the title of a story, and one a semi-repetition of a story credit.
You Only Lose Once, Breakout! and Pearl Harbor appear nearly fully in color, the rest in b/w.
Contains Keniji Nakazawa's Hiroshima story "I saw it", Raymond Brigg's falklands war story, the 1st ever of Pat mill's "charley's War" , Will Eisner's "last Day in Nam" , And stories from Blazing combat, Battle Picture weekly, air war stories, and combat picture library.
"The landings in sicily" is a good story about lucky Luciano and his part in the war (c1969).
Keniji Nakazawa's Hiroshima story "I saw it" was very anti war but still a good read.
And "the road to glory is a cool story about a British corporeal that had an impossible mission but due to his bravery he succeeded.
All in all it is a mixed bag of some great comics, some good, ok, not so good and a few terrible ones! The QUALITY IS AMAZING though!
