un-named platoon Captain; un-named Lieutenant (death); un-named platoon Sergeant (death); un-named squad leaders; Corporal Ed Daley; Peewee; North Korean soldiers (villains, many die)
Readers are invited to join in with a platoon during the Korean War, and Peewee can't understand why Ed doesn't want his Sergeant's rating. But Ed tells him why: he doesn't want the responsibilities associated with the rank, and the fact that most of Sergeants in Korea are getting killed.
Lieutenant Harry Chesterfield (American pilot, death); Lieutenant Tram (American pilot); Lieutentant Mambro (American pilot); The Germans (villains, some die)
Confident Lt. Chesterfield, having just downed his 3rd Pfalz this month, told his comrades in arms that he was going after a Rumpler next. He succeeds and a day later goes up against his 5th and 6th planes, and if he bags one of them, he becomes an Ace! What Harry doesn't realize is that the Germans have set a trap for him.....a fatal trap.
