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 appropriate. Men, like the crew here, risked everything so that the men of the infantry in the vanguard of any advance had the best chance of success possible.

But don't think this is a history lesson. Ken Barr's cover sets 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...
