About this book

In this thrilling historical adventure set during World War II, Steve Rogers (AKA Captain America) and his young sidekick, Bucky Barnes, encounter threat like none they've ever seen -- a Ghost Army. The dead of this war and wars past are coming back to life, impervious to bullets, flames, or anything else the Allies can throw at them. The armies rise from the ground in the night and seem to disappear without a trace.

How can Cap and Buck fight something that's already dead? And just what does the mysterious Baron Mordo—sitting in his castle atop nearby Wundagore Mountain—have to do with this?

Award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author Alan Gratz merges the worlds of historical fiction and super hero comics in this one-of-a-kind graphic novel that is sure to be met with major enthusiasm from fans of all ages.

A Common Sense Selection for Books

It’s hard to craft a superhero epic specifically for middle-grade readers that also honors an oldfashioned adventure mentality, but Gratz locks in reader interest . . . Schoonover’s art has old-fashioned charm as well, like an adventure movie with solid, practical effects rather than numbingly sleek digital ones, lending a visual assist to the story’s more human scope. This is not to suggest, of course, that either art or story skimps on the raucous action, nor that there aren't plenty of Marvel Easter eggs placed throughout the battlefield for eager aficionados to pick out."

-Booklist, Starred Review

Come for the Marvel flair; stay for the well-rounded characters and historical touch points.
