Synopsis: Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #156 reprints issue #60 (November 1968) of the same series. The Agent of 1,000 Faces impersonates the Howlers' CO Sam Sawyer and arrests Dum Dum Dugan for disobeying orders and engaging the German Col. Klaue in a fight in the previous issue. The Howlers all appear at Dugan's court-martial, providing testimony in a series of flashbacks to Fury Special issues #2, 24, 38, 40, 50, and 59 that serve as character references in the trial and a great introduction to Dum Dum for new readers. Dugan is found guilty, but the decision is reversed after Fury realizes that Sawyer's eyes are blue, not brown like those of the Agent of 1,000 Faces. Dum Dum is freed and the Howling Commandos prepare to rescue Sam Sawyer next issue!
