Fans of Doc Savage,* The Shadow and The Avenger (not The Avengers, this dude's singular. Very) will want to check out Sanctum Books, busily reprinting all three, including original covers, illustrations and blurbs.
Back in the real world, J-GRIT is busy indexing and biographing, in their words, "the world's toughest, bravest, and most adventurous Jews." From Emma Goldman to WW II Major General Maurice Rose, some pretty outstanding personalities. Even pirates!
And both links from a Wiki-wander into South American wars of the 19th and 20th Centuries.
* Clark Savage, Jr., the Man of Bronze, perhaps the greatest crimefighter of all time. Ever. They don't make 'em like that any more.
