Calum Laird, Commando Editor, introduces...
Women in Commando are a rare sighting but, like buses, when they
do turn up there's more than one. I counted at least three in here,
and a bit of romance.
Don't think that it means that Stainton's story isn't an
all-guns-blazing story, as it is - running from the beaches of
Dunkirk to a full-on Commando raid in France, and with barely time
to reload along the way. His touch means that the espionage,
beautifully pointed up by Ken Barr's dramatic night drop cover,
manages to be action-packed, not tension-filled.
Add to that Alonso's 100mph inside art and you have a solid gold
winner. Makes you proud to be part of the Commando Team.
