In his “USS Stevens” stories for DC, Sam Glanzman’s time as a U.S. Navy sailor and WWII veteran put the kind of touch on war and combat that you can only get by actually being there. His stories were an important part of DC military titles, including Sgt. Rock, Our Army At War, Star-Spangled War Stories, G.I. Combat and Weird War Tales, and later Joe Kubert Presents. Glanzman showed all different sides of war and the authenticity of these tales made them that much more fascinating to read.
