Charlton War Comics - Fightin' Navy #79

Though how much I hate wars I love the brave stories of War specially in comics format. 
Fightin' Navy was a bimonthly war comic published by Charlton Comics from 1956–1966, and then again from 1983–1984 in reprints. Telling fictional stories of the United States Navy. It was one of the group of other Charlton war comics Fightin' Army, Fightin' Air Force, and Fightin' Marines.

The first issue of Fightin' Navy was #74, published in January 1956. Interesting Fightin' Navy did not start with issue number one; it was a renaming of a series called Don Winslow of the Navy, which published four issues, numbered #70–73, from March–September 1955. (The Don Winslow title originated with Fawcett Comics, which published 69 issues from 1943 — 1951.) The title ceased publication with issue #125, dated May 1966. Nearly twenty years later.

Early issues sported the tagline "Exciting Sea Battle Stories."

Almost all of the stories in Fightin' Navy take place during World War II, telling tales of American ships battling the Japanese and the Germans.
