Indexer Notes

Script originally attributed to Joe Gill, but this is highly unlikely for several reasons. First, given Pete Morisi's freelancing patterns prior to 1958 it is most likely that this story was not originally done for Charlton, but for Comic Media, Magazine Enterprises, or Toby, and acquired when Charlton bought out their war comic back inventory of stories in 1954-1955. If that was the case, then Joe Gill would not have been the author. More to the point, the very first paragraph in the story refers to the outcome (the older sergeant goes from staggering, exhausted wreck to fighting dynamo when he loses and then needs to recover his false teeth), which is something Joe Gill would not have done. Gill, at least at this point in his career, was grinding out 30+ pages per day and never plotting them before he scripted them. Between 1956-1959 there is rarely (if ever) a Joe Gill opening paragraph in a war story that foreshadows the end of the story. Thus it is unlikely Gill wrote this one.
