Frontline Combat #3 - Wally Wood art

Frontline Combat v1 #3, 1951 - Wally Wood illustrates the story of Nazi general Erwin Rommel, the brilliant military strategist who outfoxed the British in North Africa. Rather than emphasizing the arid environment, the artist fills the panels with tanks, planes and other military hardware. His sequence of same sized panels (page 6) gives equal weight to a list of Nazi atrocities. Wood's level of detail surpasses that of most of his peers. Other artists in this issue include Jack Davis, John Severin and Harvey Kurtzman (cover). This is number 3 of 13 Frontline Combat issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Frontline Combat issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
