Trouble in Tibet

Issue Number: 5089

In the thirteenth century, Kublai Khan’s ships were decimated by two typhoons off the coast of Japan. The Japanese deemed these typhoons a ‘kamikaze’ or a ‘divine wind’, which bolstered the nation’s belief that their shores would never be invaded.

This belief would cause a German team, led by an SS Major and a team of Gurkhas, led by an eccentric Englishman, to race to find a hermit monk on the great slopes of the Himalayas – all before the D-Day landing!
