Diggers Die Hard

Calum Laird, Commando Editor, introduces...


Here we have three members of the first Commando team to take to the field, playing their 'A' game - despite the hideous pun in the title willed on it by some editor or other. Eric Hebden's tale takes you to the outer fringes of the Second World War to find a nicely-off-the-wall situation. This is something Commando has often done over the years - avoiding the obvious, seeking the novel.

With Gordon Livingstone settled into his stride as a Commando illustrator par excellence, and Ken Barr's stonking cover setting the right note, this one is solid gold from start to finish. I think I might read it again.

(Diggers Die Hard originally Commando No.39 - October 1962)
