War Comics

 War comics feature stories of wartime battles and and adventures.They gained popularity after World War II. UMBC's Special Collections features a number of war comics, including the one listed below. 

Our Army at War: 1960s and 70s                                                                              

            Very few comics during the Vietnam era actually focused on that conflict. Most, like this one, rehashed stories from World War II and the Korean War.  Featuring Sgt. Rock and Easy Company, this series offers super-realistic (for the time) art and a patriotic vision of the American soldier.
