Notes

  • Blackhawk: One of Von Volter's underlings mentions Baron von Tepp, also known as the Butcher, from Military Comics #13.
  • Last issue for Gill Fox on Death Patrol, replaced next issue by Al Stahl.
    • "Hirocheato" is the Emperor of Japan, and he does die in this story. This gives rise to no end of continuity problems, the simplest explanation for which is that these Death Patrol stories are not really set in the same Quality Universe as the Blackhawks or Uncle Sam. Or other Death Patrol stories, for that matter. "Hirohito" like many formerly-dead Death Patrol members, will appear next issue.
    • When Hirocheato and Von Ribbontripe are killed in an explosion, the Hindu Death Patrol member, Yogi, exclaims "Allah have mercy on them!"
  • P.T. Boat
    • Harvey and Tobias are now in command of PT-72.
    • They now are both Lieutenants.
    • Two more enemy submarine crews are killed.
  • Secret War News
    • "This is an actual story based upon inside facts gathered from U.S.N. Information Bureaus."
  • Also appearing in this issue of Military Comics were:
    • Blackhawk: "Fate Fights For Freedom" (text story)
    • Johnny Doughboy by Bernard Dibble

Trivia

  • No trivia.
