Battle Stories

 BAT8   (Fawcett, 1952-1953)

™ and ©1952 Fawcett Publications, Inc.

Battle Stories was a K-ration quality war series set in Korea, published in the early 1950s by Fawcett, who was clearly running out of creative steam by that point. Stories like “You’ll Never Be Twenty,” “Platoon Forward” and “Land-Lubber” offer war combat action in all its violence and gritty detail, with stock characters falling on grenades to save the rest of the squadron, grizzled veterans warning the fresh-faced recruits about the dangers ahead, and courageous soldiers overmatched by scores of enemy troops finding a way back home against all odds. The ugly stories are matched with ugly, claustrophobic artwork and a generally malevolent editorial tone.
