Mixing classic strips from the likes of Sam Glanzman, Alex Toth and Joe Kubert, with graphic shorts by Ted Rall and Joe Sacco, as well as several unpublished pieces on most recent conflicts by lesser known names, the contributors collectively represent the finest graphic artists to have covered the subject of war in the 20th century. The works are drawn from a widest possible variety of sources, including classic comic magazines like the bimonthly Blazing Combat published by Warren in the 1970s, and DC Thomson's ongoing Commando, individual collections such as Sam Glanzman's Marvel-published work, and smaller press publications whose hidden gems can now be brought to the light of day. Contributors include: Alex Toth, Sam Glanzman, Garth Ennis, Joe Kubert, Joe Sacco, Art Spiegelman, Peter Severin, Darko Macan and Ted Rall.
