Synopsis for Blackhawk: "The Doomed Battalion"

A cobbled together airplane crash lands on Blackhawk Island. From it, Blackhawk pulls a small, noisy Chinese man in colorful coolie costume. The new arrival tells the Blackhawks that Nurse Ann (seen in Military #1 has set up a haven for crippled soldiers in Yugoslavia. She has made an enemy of a price gouging merchant by giving away food for free. The Nazis bombed the haven but the wounded soldiers shot down two of enemy planes. Chop-Chop, as the Chinese man calls himself, used the wrecks to build the plane in which he arrived. He’s come for help as Nurse Ann’s haven will soon be overrun by 10,000 Nazis. The Blackhawks fly off to the Drina Valley in Yugoslavia. The Blackhawks organize the locals and develop a plan of defense, but Markov, the food merchant, betrays them to the Germans. Blackhawk himself protects explosives at the base of the dam they plan to blow to drown the Germans, after first getting a tearful embrace from Nurse Ann. Andre reluctantly triggers the explosion since that was Blackhawk’s orders. The dam blows, flooding the valley and wiping out most of the Nazi invaders. Somehow, Blackhawk escaped death and leads everyone in a fight to finish off the enemy. The Blackhawks take to the air and smash the Nazi fighters in an amazing display of flying skill. When everyone is back on the ground, the German commander tries to shoot Blackhawk in the back, but Andre pushes him out of the way and is wounded in his place. Andre, knowing he is dying, rolls down a mountain to start an avalanche that traps the remaining Nazis in a cave. The last we see of him is his hand sticking out of a pile of boulders. The Blackhawks drop Ann and her nurses by parachute into England and then return to Blackhawk Island to face an irate Chop-Chop. A final page is used to inform the reader to look for a full-color map of Blackhawk Island in the next issue. And it provided another opportunity for more “humor” with Chop-Chop.

Synopsis for The Blue Tracer: "The Burma Road"

Over the Burma Road, the Blue Tracer is fighting a Japanese bomber. Its guns jam so “Wild Bill” Dunn rams the bomber, smashing it into pieces. The Blue Tracer comes through without a scratch and lands near a railroad. The local mandarin, Yang Fu, warns them of approaching Japanese Army forces. They make a plan to use the Blue Tracer against them but the plan is overheard by Yang Fu’s servant, Sin Fang, who is a Japanese agent. The servant stabs Yang Fu after Dunn and Jones leave. Jones chases Sin Fang over a cliff and the agent dies. The Blue Tracer’s crew organize the local Chinese into a defense and then flys ahead to destroy a trestle bridge as the troop train is crossing. The Chinese finish off the few troops who survived the plunge into the valley. Bill and Boomerang are thanked by Yang Fu.

Synopsis for Death Patrol: "The Stratosphere Bombs"

Zazzy joins the Death Patrol, and waves off all warnings about how everybody who does that dies. Meanwhile the Luftwaffe attacks London, using a flat-topped dirigible, lurking in the stratosphere, as both a bomber and a flying airfield. Del van Dyne figures out what's going on, and leads the Death Patrol in an attack on this thing. Wearing special, heated, oxygen-supplied jumpsuits, they land their Hawker Hurricanes on the super-zeppelin's flight deck, and overpower the crew. The carrier's captain, (claiming to be disgusted by his superiors and by Naziism in general), tells them that this stratospheric bombing sortie is just a diversion, from a dirigible-mounted infantry invasion, from Calais to Dover, starting in two hours. Leaving Slick to guard the captured crew, Del and Butch and Gramps and Hank and Zazzy take off to attack this invasion. But one of the dirigible's crew manages to headkonk Slick with a thrown wrench, and soon they all are free. Plus the captain lied about the dirigible invasion, but now radios Calais to get some antiaircraft guns set up. The Death Patrol hits a hot welcome over Calais, but breaks off quickly and returns to the hovering carrier, which also has a hot welcome for them, but they shoot it down. Slick is still aboard at the time, and one big explosion also takes out Zazzy's plane. Zazzy parachutes to safety, but Slick is gone for good.
