Travel to the World War II front lines with Wonder Woman at your side.  With over 35 classic comics from her first 5 years in circulation, Wonder Woman the War Years tells her origin story in the original art. 

Warrior princess, leader of the Amazons, and a primary member of "The Big Three" and The Justice League.  Wonder Woman is among the most famous heroes of all time.
