    Unknown Soldier (1988 2nd Series) 1

    He's a soldier. A man who's made a career of following orders, going where he's sent and doing what he's told. But the times have changed and so has he. The gung-ho career militarist's experiences have made him disillusioned and bitter...and his life and the experience of war will never be the same again. Meet THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER...but don't expect him to be like any other soldier you've ever met before. And don't expect the 12-issue UNKNOWN SOLDIER maxi-series to be like any other war comic you've ever read. Not by a long shot. Because not only will you be introduced to the horrors of one man's war, but you'll also get to know the man himself as the SOLDIER's true origin and secrets are revealed over the course of the series.
