From the publisher:

ONE MAN ARMY: Don Pendleton's Mack Bolan, "The Executioner," applied his select skills and training to target organized crime with the intensity, fortitude, and firepower of an entire division of highly trained specialists. Bolan took on the Mafia, the KGB, and international terrorism with ruthless, relentless determination...and lethal results.

ONE MAN ARMY: Gil Cohen, veteran artist, targeted the commercial illustration market with the drive, skill, and stamina of ten painters. Creating hundreds of arresting cover images for bestsellers and paperback series of every stripe (while somehow also working as a university art teacher), Cohen was a powerhouse producer of memorable covers and a "secret weapon" of publishers who recognized that his dynamic and memorable artwork was invaluable in defining--and selling--paperback novels in a fiercely competitive marketplace.

ONE MAN ARMY: The explosive new art book from The Men's Adventure Library, produced in full cooperation with the Artist. Exploring the incomparable talents of Gil Cohen through the unique perspective he brought to the Mack Bolan universe, ONE MAN ARMY showcases dozens of his spectacular and iconic original paintings created as cover art for the bestselling action series. A visual chronicle of the ongoing--and ever-expanding--adventures of Mack Bolan and company that spotlights Cohen's seminal role in establishing the Bolan mythos and legend for millions of dedicated readers.
