Blazing Combat was originally published by independent comics publisher James Warren in 1965 and 1966.  Following in the tradition of Harvey Kurtzman’s Two-Fisted Tales and Frontline Combat, Goodwin’s stories reflected the human realities and personal costs of war rather than exploiting the clichés of the traditional men’s adventure genre.  They were among the best comics stories about war ever published, and they are collected here for the first time in a striking hardcover volume with exclusive interviews with Goodwin and Warren.

Description of excerpt: Pages 84-90, "Holding Action" with art by John Severin.
