Stuff looks great! The rendering style and charcoal technique really feel very WWII.
I don't know if you're looking for feedback, but if I had to suggest something it would be to make the Photoshop work less noticeable. The drawings are great, but the added gradients and tinting—although fairly subtle and intended to reproduce the look of photos of the time—still feel sort of incongruous. Just my two cents.

Oh yeah, we're out there.
This has an interesting style, and I encourage you to go forward with it. You might experiment with paper and other textures on adjustment layers to soften the effect of the filters. The German helmet on the cover image should have its silhouette adjusted somewhat- the front lip is more substantial and the drop at the sides more pronounced (though less so on the M40 than the M42). The top is also less round. There are pictures all over the internet of course, but I find 1/6 scale (think 12" GI Joe) accessories to be very useful reference for stuff I draw a lot. You can get them cheap on eBay, and might find them useful.
I like your worn, washed-out look but the lighten panels seem to flatten out a bit much when put against a black page background, such as in the third panel. You might consider adding deeper shadows and hotter highlights to a figure presented like that.
Very interesting, overall. I'm looking forward to seeing more.
