Synopsis from publisher:

Assuming a wide variety of disguises to battle the Nazis, the Unknown Soldier plunges deep behind enemy lines in this 560-page black-and-white SHOWCASE trade, collecting stories from his first appearance in STAR-SPANGLED WAR STORIES #151 to issue #190.

Notes:

This publication reprints the “Unknown Soldier” stories from the comic book anthology series Star-Spangled War Stories. The comic was a horror-themed anthology, and so used a variety of creators. Joe Kubert was the primary writer and artist, although others contributed. The cover was illustrated by Joe Kubert, and was originally published as the cover of Star-Spangled War Stories #172.

The first 150 issues of the series have yet to be reprinted or collected. Following the issues reprinted in this publication, the series continued until issue #204 in 1977, at which point the series was re-titled Unknown Soldier, which ran until issue #268 in 1982. Those issues have yet to be reprinted or collected.
