She Was A Decoy In A Tropical Brawl…
This is a rare dust jacket edition, with the colorful jacket covering up the more minimalist inner cover.
I find it interesting that in April 1942, cover artists hadn’t yet started emphasizing the Nazi aspect of the Germans. This officer could easily be from WWI instead.
This scene was originally based on the feature Reckless Commando Raid on Tobruk: We’re Bringing Back a German General. It later appeared on the cover of True Action magazine, May 1962, for the feature The Surprise Allied Raid that Captured a Top Afrika Corps General.
These issues also feature WWII Yank And Five Nudist Girls Who Liberated A Danish Village, The Paris Party girl And Her Strange Love Balloon, The Hell-Raising Yank Who Led A Mongol Army, and The Sea Nymph
Six Survived To Tell What Happened
I find it interesting that, even though this is a serious look at the consequences of atomic warfare, it is basically impossible to tell from the cover art that it takes place in Japan.
Hiroshima tells the stories of six survivors of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, covering a period of time immediately prior to and one year after the atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945. It was originally published in The New Yorker. Although the story was originally scheduled to be published over four issues, the entire August 31, 1946 edition was dedicated to the article. The article and subsequent book are regarded as one of the earliest examples of the New Journalism, in which the story-telling techniques of fiction are adapted to non-fiction reporting.
