Ah, good old propaganda. Don't never trust nobody because everyone else in the world is a puppy-kicking no goodnik that just loves being evil!

I'd never read these comics. Now I wish I hadn't. They present nuclear war as just a bigger, badder, better World War III. Everyone blithely rains A-bombs and H-bombs upon each other with nary a hint of radioactivity. GI's in Berlin watch a nuclear bomb drop a few miles away then hop up and rush out to kick some Soviet ass. Having grown up during the Cold War under the constant shadow of The Big One, the whole exercise leaves me with a sick feeling in my stomach.

Great stories. The world has become very volatile in 2014. I get a real bad feeling that we are headed toward another world conflict the way things are headed these days.

This is a fascinating series of comic books, giving the general view of the American defense department and a good big part of the general public in the United States in the fifties. When sci fi movies were centered on invaders and end of the world scenarios, the idea of a war ending all we knew was the biggest scare in the country as I was growing up. It was interesting to see a story where the war took place, (naturally started by the Soviet Union), in which there were far more than atomic bombs. The authors must have assumed there would be an unlimited source of atomic energy for use in atomic cannon, atomic guns and explosives devices and, even, atomic gasses. Considering the fact that the bombing of Japan hadn't been that long ago, at the time, and uranium was still hard to come by, the authors of the comics must have been assuming the free and communist world would be in a neck and neck race to create a huge stock pile nuclear fissionable material.
