Duel in the Desert
- Mon 23 Jul 2012
Calum Laird, Commando Editor, introduces...
In the year of the 70th anniversary of the battle of El
Alamein, this story of desert raiders paving the way for the
advance with a daring night attack behind the lines is very

men of the infantry in the vanguard of any advance had the best
chance of success possible.

the scene for a tale of adventure and action that starts as a
slow-burner which explodes into crackerjack action in the hands of
Dorward and Martin.
Speaking of burners, check out the interrogation scene...
