The British Blunder That Lost 500 GI Lives — Tactical error? Sellout? Act of cowardice? There’s never been an explanation for this 24-ship half-a-billion-dollar tragedy

Also featuring Daytime: Miss Society, Nighttime: “Any Bed” Dolly — The blonde scandal that set the world on its heels and The Great Tramp Army That Held The Hills Of Cyclades — From deep in the Greek mountains they engaged the enemy, a wonderful, straw-hatted, tobacco-chewing, death-dealing hero brigade

Magazines in 1960 saved on printing costs by keeping full-color pages to a minimum, using mostly two-color images for illustrations. In this case, the publisher only wanted to pay for one full-color page for this two-page story spread, so Charles Copeland actually painted this image half color, half duotone.
