This is a story from EC’s FRONTLINE COMBAT #14.

The story was written by Harvey Kurtzman, as all the other war stories. Kurtzman wrote and thumbnail sketched 132 war stories for EC.

It was illustrated by Wally Wood, who was very good at illustrating war episodes. Even though he was excellent at illustrating MAD.

This story, to me, comes off almost like a military training film. It is educational, explaining how some rescues are carried about.

And strangely, for a war story in a war comic nobody gets killed.

As usual, click on each page to be able to read the balloons and you know what is going on.

These are better than the newspaper funnies. And that is all I read in the Suday paper. So you are better than the Nesw York Times.

I agree with you, Chicken Fat's Sunday Funnies are much better than the NY TIMES Sunday Funnies.
