America's spunkiest kid is hospitalized after a car crash, has to fight off a dope-pushing doctor, meets "Crazy Kate" (who's not all that crazy!), and helps the bearded old man named Zaney keep his secret formula out of Nazi hands. When America enters the Second World War, Annie protects the home front by forming the Junior Commandos, a group that inspired tens of thousands of real-life children to collect newspapers, scrap metal, and other items needed for the war effort. The fictional "Colonel Annie," meanwhile, finds herself face-to-face with fifth columnists and a Nazi submarine! Daddy Warbucks, true to his name, is back making munitions and leads a mysterious army overseas. This volume of The Complete Little Orphan Annie includes dailies and Sundays from November 24, 1941 through August 7, 1943.
