    A fun world war two era travel book for the world done solely for comic purposes complimented by comic maps and illustrations done by illustrator Carl Rose.

    Condition is very good for covers and contents, though the dust jacket is worn with rips. Book size is approximately 9 x 6.5 (inches). Total of 281 pages.
