Synopsis for Haunted Tank: "Clay Pigeon Crew!"

Deep in the Burmese jungle, the Haunted Tank is under fire from a squad of Japanese soldiers guarding an ancient temple. The enemy is using a group of scantly-clad Burmese girls as shields, making it impossible for Lt. Jeb Stuart and his men to return fire. As the Japanese are distracted by the approaching tank, Jeb yells at the girls to dive to the ground. Jeb open fires with his machine gun, and the Japanese soldiers are all shot down. The girls quickly get up and grab the dead soldiers' machetes. Jeb is worried at first when the armed girls begin to advance on the tank, but the lead explains that now that they they have weapons they will not be taken so easily as before. Jeb explains that the Haunted Tank had been dropped by parachute into Burma to help General Stilwell and his army, but the winds carried them far off from their intended landing zone. All the girls know of "Vinegar Joe", the local nickname for Stilwell, and offer to lead the tank to him.

As the girls lead them through the jungle, Jeb remembers back over the events that had brought them there. Back in London, his C.O. explained that they were being chosen because of of their past experience in the region. The Allied forced are being beaten by the Japanese. General Stilwell is trying to do the impossible by leading his forces through 140 miles of Burmese jungle to the safety of India. Stilwell had informed Washington about Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek's fight against the Chinese Communists of Mao Tse-Tung, but his superiors now believe he is wrong and worrying for nothing. The Haunted Tank was dropped into Burma, during which Jeb saw the ghost of his ancestor General J.E.B. Stuart, who refused to talk to him being mysteriously silent. It was then, after they landed, that they realized they were in the wrong place. Jeb's mind is brought back to the present when he notices the Haunted Tank has stopped. A wall of thick jungle stands before them. The girls jump off the tank and begin to hack a path through the dense foliage for the tank to drive through. Gus and Rick get out, take their shirts off, and lend a hand to the girls. But as the Haunted Tank inches forward, Jeb spots the eyes of enemy soldiers watching them from the jungle around. The others take cover as Jeb opens fire into the enemy in hiding, killing them all. The girls are immediately back on their feet, laughing at the guys still lying on the ground, before continuing their work creating the path.

Under the tormenting sun, the task continues very slowly. Jeb orders everyone to stop for a moment and take a breather. Slim passes out the jerrycans, and the girls offer to take Gus and Rick to water not far from there. At the small lake, the girls swim and frolic under the cool shower of a waterfall while the guys fill the jerrycans. The girls want Gus and Rick to join them in the water, but Rick refuses to get in and only wants to return to the tank and back on the path towards their own forces. Meanwhile, back at the Haunted Tank, jeb and Slim are ambushed by Japanese soldiers jumping out of the trees from above. Both Jeb and Slim are experts at fist-fighting, and quickly take out their enemy. They're victory is short-lived, as the rest of the Japanese force appears out of the jungle to surround them. The Japanese officer, a man of large build, steps forward. He is impressed with the American's style of boxing, but he is a well-known sumo wrestler and champion at U.C.L.A. before returning to his country. With one swift move, he takes out Slim with an overhead throw. Jeb steps up, throwing punches. His hits have no effect on the huge Japanese man, and with an elbow to the head and a punch to the jaw Jeb is down for the count. The officer looms over Jeb's form, ready for the kill, when a machete embeds itself into the man's back killing him. He falls forward on top of Jeb, knocking the wind out of the lieutenant. From the jungle burst Gus, Rick, and the girls! Within a very short time the Japanese soldiers are overwhelmed and taken out.

Meanwhile, General Stilwell and his American forces press forward onto the Japanese army, using the advantage of their weakened left to attack. Their attack is successful, thanks to the sudden appearance of the Haunted Tank coming from the right. Jeb is glad to see the general, and is thankful that the other tanks were able to clear the way for them. The general is perplexed, and explains that there are no other tanks, just them. He is baffled as to how the tank was able to get through such a dense jungle. Jeb looks back at the girls, but decides not to tell him. Just then, the ghost of General Stuart appears again before Jeb. Jeb now knows why the ghost was strangely silent before - he didn't have the heart to tell them that they were on their own. General Stilwell walks by and sees Jeb talking to himself and, believing that Jeb is suffering from heat stroke, orders his aide to fetch the salt tablets!

Synopsis for Women at War: "Flash in the Pan"

Near an island in the Pacific front, a squad of Marines on a raft are being attacked by a Japanese Zero plane. With the Marines is a lone photographer, Miss. Forrest, rapidly taking photos as the Marines fire their rifles back at the attacking enemy. The plane explodes, and then drops like a fireball into the water below.

On the beach, Both the lieutenant and his sergeant watch as their men and the photographer come ashore. The lieutenant doesn't believe that women have any right being in the war, but has been ordered to cooperate with her as she's with the press. He orders his sergeant to take her somewhere nice, safe, and more importantly, out of the way. He leads her through the jungle and to the other side of the island, opposite where they believe the attack will come from. There are other Marines manning the many foxholes dug into the sand, and they whistle and cat-call to her as she walks past. The sergeant points to an empty foxhole for her to take refuge. She climbs in, preparing her flashbulbs for any action, but the sergeant yells at her to not use them or they'll give away their position. The jungle night descends swiftly, and the men around her relax. Suddenly, the night explodes in white heat as a grenade is thrown into one of the nearby foxholes. The machine gun post, and the men inside, are all wiped out. Then, she hears something approaching from the jungle. Closer... closer... Pulling out her camera, she activates the flash, illuminating a surprise attack from the Japanese infantry for all the Marines to see! The Marines open fire into the shocked Japanese, wiping out the enemy in front of them. But it was just the first wave. Another attack, and then another, each lit up bright by the woman's flash camera for the men to see and target. But then, she realizes that she is out of flash bulbs. Squinting in the dark, she can see another final wave of Japanese soldiers approaching from the jungle. But as they attack over the sandy ridge, the greatest flash bulb of them all appears in the sky... the morning sun! The attacks is quickly taken care of, and the woman is able to take numerous pictures of the battle now that she has the light of the sun to help her. The battle over, the Marine lieutenant walks up and thanks her for saving their position against the attacking enemy, and asks her how she is going to caption the pictures she took. Miss. Forrest looks up at the sky. "The rising sun for us... was the setting sun for them!"

Synopsis for O.S.S.: "The Killer Stars"

With the Allies pressing him on all sides and faced with defeat, Adolf Hitler has sent for his personal astrologer. The man tells his Fuhrer that the stars predict that he will die, but only after Gauleiter Gerhard Bergman is dead. Hitler is relieved to hear the prediction, as Bergman, a district governor known for his execution squads, is even more well-guarded than Hitler himself.

At O.S.S. Headquarters, Control is briefing with two of his most trusted agents, code-named "Philip" and "Maritza". He tells them that Bergman has become a symbol of Germans's invincibility and must be liquidated. His plan requires two people, a singer who can watch the executions of innocent people without flinching an inch, and a frogman who must become a fish out of water. He has given the assignment to Philip and Maritza, and they are ready.

One week later, after the two agents have been dropped into occupied Czechoslovakia, Maritza has established herself as a beautiful singer at one of the most prestigious nightclubs in the country, one that is frequented by the highest of Nazi leaders. That night, Gauleiter Bergman is in attendance with his staff, and asks one of them to fetch the lovely singer to his table. After being thoroughly searched for any weapons, she joins Bergman at his table. He offers her a glass of wine, stating that it could be poisoned as many would like to see his death. She takes it with pleasure, therefore passing his first test. He tells her to get her coat and join him for dinner at his headquarters. During the car ride there, flanked by armed guards at every corner, he tells her to look out the window. Along the road, citizens are being gathered and executed right before them. Bergman asks her if she feels pity for the poor wretches. She tells him no, as they are enemies of the Third Reich. He is impressed by her ruthlessness and beauty. As they approach the ancient castle that now houses Gestapo Headquarters, she spots the lake beside and tells Bergman that as a little girl she used to row out onto a lake and daydream that a handsome hero would fall in love with her. Bergman promises to make her dreams come true.

As they enter the castle, she is shown the strong defenses in place - heavy FLAK guns atop the roof and heavy machine guns and mortars to take out any who dare attack. They are in for a surprise, for when they enter the main dining hall, Adolf Hitler himself is sitting at the end of the table waiting for them. He tells Bergman that he had heard of his beautiful beautiful companion for the evening, and that his intelligence has informed him that she is an O.S.S. agent assigned to kill him! Bergman is skeptical that any agent could have gotten through his vigorous screening, but Hitler assures him that that his sources are better. Bergman bows to his Fuhrer's warning, but wishes to dispose of her in his own way. Shortly after, Maritza is placed onto a boat and, along with Bergman holding her a gunpoint, forces her to row out to the middle of the lake. He had promised her that he would make her dream come true, except this time it will be a nightmare. Bergman stands, aiming the pistol right at her forehead. A hand reaches out of the water, and before he can fire, Philip appears in full frogman gear and tips the boat. Bergman falls into the water. The two men tussle, but Philip gets the better of the Nazi. From shore, Hitler orders a speedboat to intercept, but a grenade thrown by Philip destroys it. Philip then give his hand to Maritza, and they both dive beneath the water as the soldiers from the shore open fire. He gives her his mask, sharing the air, and the two swim down and through an underground tunnel. After a long, agonizing swim, they final submerge in a pool in the woods several miles away. A plane awaits them to fly them back to England Now that their mission is done. Back at the lake, divers recover Bregman's corpse. Hitler stands over it. The first part of his astrologer's prediction has come true, but he will defy the stars. Back in Berlin, Hitler puts his army of laborers to work building a bunker that will keep him safe from harm for the war. He swears to never leave the impregnable bunker, and vows to live to win the war. But within a year, Control stands amidst the rubble of Berlin and the bunker, to state that fate is never to be cheated!

Synopsis for Haunted Tank: "A Tank For a Pharaoh!"

Far out in the Sahara Desert, the Haunted Tank patrols in the fierce heat of the North African sun. Jeb squints to see through the shimmering haze of the heat. Suddenly, he spots a pair of Rommel's Panzer tanks just in front of them. He shouts, ordering Rick to open fire on the enemy. He does, making direct hits on the two Panzers. Then... they vanish! Jeb had been fooled by a mirage created by the intense heat. He orders Slim to continue on to their destination, the Suez Canal.

After awhile, the ghost of General J.E.B. Stuart appears before the tank. Jeb explains to the General that their mission is to delay Rommel's tanks on the only path to the Suez Canal until reinforcements can arrive. Should Rommel and his army reach Suez, his tanks will be able to pick off the American supply ships coming down the canal and leaving the Allied forces sitting ducks for any attack. Inside the tank, Rick, Gus, and Slim hear Jeb talking to the ghost, but again just assume he's seeing another mirage.

Arriving at an oasis, the crew get out to fill their jerrycans while they have a chance. But when Rick tries to take a drink, he discovers that it's not water, it's oil! From behind them, they are suddenly attacked by a strange motley army of Egyptians on camel-back. At first Jeb ignores it, believing it to be another mirage, but the leader of the Egyptians, a man who claims to be Pharaoh Seti, orders his men to take the four prisoner for trespassing on on his domain. Jeb tries to radio for help, but a woman, the daughter of Seti, quickly chops off the radio antenna from the Haunted Tank before the message can get out. The crew are soon overrun and beaten down and are forced to surrender. Seti orders his new prisoners to follow him in the Haunted Tank. Not far away, they arrive at a building site for a brand new pyramid, one that is being built to the eternal glory of Seti just as his ancestors had done thousands of years before. Seti explains that Osiris, God of the Dead, had appeared to him in a dream and revealed the secret of building the pyramids.

For days the Haunted Tank is used to help the Egyptian followers of Seti to build the pyramid, using the tanks massive horsepower to push the great stone blocks onto rolling logs and up onto the building site atop the pyramid. Searing heat by day, and bitter cold by night marks the passing of the days for Jeb, but he is unable to do anything to stop them as long as they hold Gus and Rick hostage in the camp below. As layers of blocks gradually heighten the pyramid, Seti's soldiers remove the ramps one by one, smoothing and finishing the outer casings until the Haunted Tank finally reaches the top ready to place the granite capstone. Then, out of the sky, a German plane swoops down to attack having spotted the tank perched high atop the pyramid. It's an easy kill, as Jeb swings the turret around and destroys the enemy fighter. The appearance of the plane tells Jeb that Rommel's forces can't be far behind on the road. He orders Slim out of the tank and down the pyramid, while he gets in to take the controls. Slim watches as Jeb puts the tank into forward gear, and drives it off the top of the pyramid. It falls down, crashing into the desert sand below upside down but with its turret pointing back towards the structure. He fires a shell, hitting the pyramid and sending a huge section of giant granite blocks crashing down onto the road below. About a mile away, Rommel spots the smoking rubble and orders his army off the road and into the desert to avoid the enemy roadblock. In the confusion, Gus and Rick are able to rejoin the others. Seti and his men mount their camels and charge towards the advancing German forces to stop their intrusion, but they are all killed before they can get far. Seti dies in his daughter's arms, and she realizes the real enemy is the Germans. Now free, Jeb orders his men to run towards the oasis they visited before. Rommel spots the running Americans and orders his tanks to spread out and follow. Jeb and the others quickly lob grenades into the oasis, and upon impact explode and ignite the oil within. The ground explodes around them, sending and inferno raging up and surrounding the German forces. Rommel orders his tanks and men to retreat before they are all incinerated. Jeb explains to the others that he suspected that Seti was guarding the oasis because he was protecting an oil field! With their tank incapacitated, the crew can only sit and wait for their own forces to reach them and help bring the Haunted Tank upright and operational again.

Synopsis for Gunner and Sarge: "Tin Marines"

A celebrated Hollywood director, his two blonde starlets, and a camera crew have come to Tenaru Island on a mission to film scenes with the Marines for a movie that can inspire the viewers to rush out and buy millions of dollars in war bonds. So far the Director is less than impressed with the action happening around him. He complains to the Marine commander, demanding he furnish him with two of his most perfect soldiers. Just then, Gunner and Sarge return from a long patrol, just in time to be assigned as the new stars for the Director's movie. Both Gunner and Sarge are up for it once they get a look at the two beautiful starlets in the film, but the Director isn't very impressed with the two Marines. The lieutenant takes the pair off to the side and explains to them that he needs the Director and his party out of the way, and asks Gunner and Sarge to take them somewhere where they can be safe and quiet. They understand, and know of just the place to take them.

Gunner and Sarge lead the Hollywood group into the jungle away from the Marine forces, and hopefully any action. The Director begins to get angry. He wants battle, with dead bodies and ear-splitting explosions. But when he turns around to complain, neither Gunner or Sarge are anywhere to be seen. Then gunfire rings out through the jungle. Gunner and Sarge emerge from the jungle, stepping over the bodies of two Japanese snipers. They may have saved all their lives, but the Director isn't happy. How can he shoot a masterpiece if his stars aren't around to be seen? The pair agree to do better. But then, Gunner spots a Japanese tank hiding in the thick jungle growth, and the two are off again. A couple of grenades later and the tank is blown to smithereens. Gunner and Sarge burst out of the jungle yelling at the party to take cover as Japanese soldiers begin to advance on their position. The Director is skeptical that anything is happening, but then he throws himself to the ground as the two Marines open fire into the charging enemy force. Now safe from enemy attack, the Director is thrilled to finally see some action, but unfortunately his cameraman didn't shoot a single frame of it! Oh well... better luck next time!

Synopsis for O.S.S.: "A Time to Die"

With no other agent available and an imperative mission to be completed, the head of the O.S.S., Control himself, has parachuted into Germany to meet with a man named Ernst. He tells him that at dawn tomorrow, American infantry will advance towards their area, completely unaware that a Panzer division is waiting for them with deadly force. Ernst, a humble clock-maker, wonders what he could possibly do against such an indestructible foe. Time will tell... and it's quickly running out for the pair of them.

Later that evening, Control and Ernst meet with that German Underground for a secret mission. While the members of the Underground load up a truck with many of Ernst's magnificent clocks, Control asks Ernst if he knows what he has to do. He nods, then drives off in the truck. As dawn begins to break, Ernst is stopped by German soldiers guarding the bridge across the river. He stops, and is forced mout of the vehicle. He tells the soldiers that he is on his way to marker to sell his clocks. Just then, all the clocks sound off at the hour. Cuckoos and chimes, they make a noisy racket that amuses the soldiers. The German sergeant in command notices the special watch that Ernst is wearing and demands he give it to him. The sergeant keeps it, putting it on his wrist and telling the clock-maker that he may keep his life for the watch. He then orders his men to unload all the clocks from the truck, to sell them and split the profits between themselves. The sergeant then notices that the watch is running exactly one hour late and fixes it. As the Panzer Division approaches the bridge, the sergeant shoos Ernst away, who gets back into his truck and speeds off. Only a few moments after, the watch begins to chime, followed by the mass of cuckoo clocks. The soldiers are confused, as it's not even on the hour. Then, they stop chiming and start ticking...

With a great explosion, the bridge and all the Panzer tanks on it are blown to bits to tumble down into thew river below. Ernst the clock-maker watches from the hill nearby. When the sergeant advanced the time on the wrist watch, he activated the timer on the booby-trapped cuckoo clocks. It may have been the wrong time for the Germans, but the right time to save the American forces in the area.

Synopsis for Haunted Tank: "Holiday in Hell"

The Haunted Tank is in the middle of a heated battle with a Panzer along the shore of a French river, when the ghost of General J.E.B. Stuart appears. The tank's commander, Lt. Jeb Stuart, questions his ancestor about their future, but the ghost ducks the questions, more cryptic than ever. After luring the Panzer into the river's water, they are finally able to get a clear shot and destroy it. The General apologizes to his descendant, saying that even he doesn't have all the answers. Inside the tank, his crew are quietly discussing Jeb's mental health, wondering if maybe they should turn him in before he gets them all killed. Outside, Jeb gets a radio signal from H.Q. telling them to head for the recently liberated town of Villeneuve to join in the Bastille Day festivities. The crew first clean themselves up, then give the tank a wash before heading that direction.

As the Haunted Tank clanks into Villeneuve, they are greeted by the celebrating townsfolk, who throw flowers and streamers at the arriving Americans. One French woman climbs atop the tank and gives Jeb a big kiss on the cheek. The town is preparing for a big Bastille Day parade, and the veterans of the Franco-Prussian War and World War I have came out in full uniform along with an old French .75 cannon. As the parade begins and the townsfolk have lined the streets, the Germans begin their attack again, shelling the buildings and sending the citizens fleeing in panic. Jeb yells for the people to take cover, but it is too late for one young woman who is hit by a nearby shell. She dies in Jeb's arms. He hands her body to a nearby citizen, then orders Slim to hightail it out of the line of fire.

The Haunted Tank begins to move down the streets, barely being missed by the targeting shells. Jeb begins to get a bearing on the enemy fire, and Rick is ready for his order. Then, down one street, Jeb spots the attacking Panzer. Rick aims the cannon, but a young girl runs into the street chasing her cat, right into his line of fire. The Panzer doesn't hold back. It fires, but the shot just misses the Haunted Tank. With the girl now safely out of the street, Rick open fires and destroys the tank. However, the burning wreck of the Panzer has now blocked the street out of town, forcing them to reverse back into town and back into the sights of the enemy. A German half-track has entered the town and the battle, and Rick is unable to turn the turret around because the street is too narrow. Then, between the Haunted Tank and the Half-track, the old French veterans appear with their cannon. The Germans laugh at the absurd sight, but are taken by surprise when the veterans open fire with deadly force. The Half-track is destroyed. Jeb watches as the veterans quickly move to turn their cannon around towards another target moving in. They fire, but the cannon misfires and explodes, killing the old French veterans manning it. Jeb is horrified, and orders Slim to move backwards so he can get a clear look at what they are facing. It's a German rocket launcher! The Haunted Tank can't fire at it, so they decide to go full speed in reverse to ram it. The rocket launcher fires, hitting the Haunted Tank and knocking it off its treads. Jeb is thrown from the turret by the blast. The fire has created so much smoke, and the Germans can't see as Jeb gets up and rushes into one of the buildings. He reaches the roof and, tossing his grenades down onto the rocket launcher below, destroys the enemy weapon.

With the Haunted Tank repaired, its battered crew wearily depart the town and head back to base. Their C.O. is amused to see them, their tank still decorated by the flowers and streamers from the parade earlier. He thinks Jeb and his crew have it easy, not aware of the price that was paid in battle.

Notes

  • The inside front cover contains an "All About Tanks" Combat Album profile for the British Mark II "Valentine" tank, the most numerous British-built tank of the Second World War, with over 8,000 built between 1940 and 1944. A sturdy, reliable, easy to maintain machine and, for a period in the middle of the Second World War, was the main British tank used in combat.
  • Within, this issue contains a one-page "Famous Fighting Outfits" profile on the 90th Infantry Division "Tough Ombres", a unit of the United States Army that served in World War I and World War II. During the battle to clear the Foret de Mont-Castre (Hill 122) on July 11, 1944, the Division suffered 5000 killed, wounded, or captured, one of the highest casualty rates suffered in WW II. Written by Murray Boltinoff.
  • The inside back cover contains a profile for the 88mm FLAK gun, a German anti-aircraft and anti-tank artillery developed in the 1930s. It was widely used by Germany to battle Allied aircraft throughout World War II, and was one of the most recognized German weapons of the war. Art by Dick Ayers.

Trivia

  • In the first story, despite being primarily Eastern European theater based, the Haunted Tank is sent to Burma because of their previous experience in the "CBI" (China, Burma, India) as shown back in issue #186.
