Notes

  • Between story two and three there is the 2-page "All About Tanks: The Tanker", a close-up look at the life and training of a tank commander. Usually, a tank platoon was commanded by a lieutenant, but due to a shortage of trained officers in 1941, a Sergeant named David Charles of Troop E 1st Cavalry was put through the task of training to become a tanker, inclusing a rigorous three-month course at Fort Knox, Kentucky, where he learned to read maps and photos, became an expert at medium and small arms, a master opf the motorcycle, the firing and directing of the guns and cannons, and the overhauling of a tank's engine. Includes a close-up look at the uniform and gear of a Tanker. Written and drawn by Sam Glanzman.

Trivia

  • In this month's "Let's Make Tracks" letter column, editor Murray Boltinoff tells of a tale that General George Patton used to tell about his time during the St. Mihiel Offensive in the First World War. He had taken refuge in a foxhole after being fired upon, while his tank kept going on without him. With no one willing to help him, he had no choice but to run after it. After about 400 yards he finally caught up with it. He was angry, but too tired to yell so he just climbed aboard. Then later, while directing the attack on Beney, he had handed his pack to a corporal who at the time was guarding a group of German prisoners. Unbeknownst to anyone, the Germans emptied the pack out of the razers, tobacco, and other personal items and refilled it with rocks. Patton lugged the pack around for hours on his back before realizing he was carrying 20 pounds of stones.
