Indexer Notes

Credits for script confirmed from Julius Schwartz's editorial records, provided by DC Comics. Schwartz kept editorial records for Robert Kanigher, who edited All-American Men Of War #113 where this story originally appeared. Schwartz's records indicate that the story was penciled and inked by Joe Kubert but Craig Dodge, via the GCD Error Group (gcd-error@googlegroups.com), 27 September 2008, credited Heath, and his initials are clearly on the splash page.
