Calum Laird, Commando Editor, introduces...
Ken Barr's cover sets your expectations for this story. The
single figure, gun in hand, grenades at the ready - and with a
thick black outline to throw the image out - lets you know this is
going to be an all-action story. If you were in any doubt, though,
the first page by Ortiz, with its dramatic title lettering,
underlines the cover's promise.
The story, penned by Elliot, doesn't disappoint - any story
where members of the Parachute Regiment capture and take over a
Tiger tank has to be a winner.
And yet, it doesn't shy away from war's darker side. In this
story good men die, friends are lost, as conflict takes its toll.
And that's maybe not what you would expect.
