Chapter VIII
From Fiction to War

Frederick Faust, who used the pen name of Max Brand in civilian life, had gained an international reputation as a writer of action-laden pulp magazine stories. Under five nom de plumes, he was known as king of the pulps. Being over-aged for war duty, he volunteered for the combat front to cover for Harpers Magazine; however, in fact, he was an over-aged infantryman who had reported to write about the human beings who actually fought. He died a battle casualty at Lower Gorigliano, Italy, in May, 1944.
