His own face may be wrapped in bandages and his identity erased, but what he becomes is something greater: the ultimate covert operative--the Unknown Soldier! A master of disguise, the Soldier infiltrates the highest echelons of the Axis powers, one mission at a time. From Austraia to Zanzibar, he goes where he is needed, influencing the tides of war with the aid of his sometime ally, codename Chat Noir. For the love of his country, the Unknown Soldier will take on not only Hitler and the whole of the Third Reich, but also his own personal nemesis: the Black Knight. -- page 4 of cover.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/2233596373<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Fiction<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Graphic novels<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Comic books, strips, etc.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Comics (Graphic works)<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/2233596373#Series\/showcase_presents_library_of_classics<\/a>> ; # Showcase presents library of classics.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Showcase presents The Unknown Soldier.
