Enemy Ace (Hans von Hammer) first appearance was in DC's Our Army at War #151 (Feb. 1965). He went on to appear in Star Spangled War Stories as a regular feature from #138 to #150. Von Hammer appeared in various DC war titles over the years. He was also the subject of two graphic novels: Enemy Ace: War in Heaven and most notably Enemy Ace: War Idyll by George Pratt.

along with Bat-Lash, and anything with Wildcat in it, the original run of Enemy Ace is one of my very favourite DC comics series. thanks for posting these.
