Churchill’s Commandos

Issue Number: 5435

“Enterprises must be prepared, with specially‑trained troops of the hunter class, who can develop a reign of terror down these coasts…”

These brave and highly‑trained men would come to be known as the British Commandos — a name that would strike terror in the hearts of every Nazi on the Atlantic Wall.
