    Summary

    On the run with Sam and Natasha, Steve finds the words to describe his commitment to Bucky. As with most of Steve’s decisions, there are unintended consequences.

    “It’s no use,” Natasha tells Sam. “You won’t get him to go out and flirt. Steve here’s a married man.”

    They’re somewhere in Croatia, and Sam’s been hard at work, trying to pull Steve away from a busy night of sketching and staring at his phone. He wants to go out and drink plum brandy and dance with the locals.

    “You should go without me,” Steve says, hazy. Married. A married man. Isn’t that something?

    Summary

    Here is the truth about Captain America and the Howling Commandos that every World War II historian must come to accept at one point or another: we will never know everything. We won’t even come close.

    So much was lost with the untimely death of Captain America. While the man beneath the uniform sunk to the bottom of the North Atlantic, the myth lived on, only to grow bigger and more unwieldy as the years went by. Now, it is near impossible to tell fact from fiction, to separate out truth from propaganda.


    In 1943, the Howling Commandos wrote goodbye letters to be given to their loved ones in the event of their deaths.

    In 2014, Sharon Carter finds those letters in a tin can in an abandoned HYDRA base.
