DC considers this story and the main story in the following issue as pseudo-Suicide Squad stories, as witness their inclusion is DC's collection of Silver Age Suicide Squad stories. But these stories do not resemble the contemporary Suicide Squad which previously appeared in The Brave and the Bold or the World War II-set Suicide Squad starting in this series beginning with #116.
The PT boat squadron in this issue is referred to as a "suicide squadron" in the title only. When the same characters return in #111, there is no mention of this phrase at all. More importantly, no group with that name appears in issue #110 or #111.
The PT boat captain is called "Skipper" throughout the two stories (referred to as "Allan" once in #110) and the other character is always called "Professor."
Story in three parts of 5.67 pages, 3.67 pages, and 5 pages.
