Know Your Enemies

Issue Number: 5246

Instant recognition of all other aircraft in the sky — that was an asset for any fighter pilot in the clash between the RAF and Hitler’s Luftwaffe. And Dick Marsh was better than most at knowing which aircraft were hostile and which were friendly. All the hard work he had put into perfecting this had […]

Edge of the Sky

Issue Number: 5245

The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird spy plane never flew in Russian airspace… officially.
 The Blackbird could reach a top speed of 2,200 mph and a ceiling height of 85,000 ft — enough to see the curvature of the earth. They outmatched everything the Russians could throw at them… except the MiG-31. So when one angry Red sets […]

Burma Nightmare

Issue Number: 5243

Jungle warfare is no picnic, and for tankies trained to desert conditions it’s even worse! Sergeant Vince Roberts and his crew find themselves deployed to dank, dense, malaria-infested jungle with only their wits to guide them, but something else is interfering. As Vince’s mind begins to crack, can he hold it together? Or will he […]

One must die!

Issue Number: 5242

The hatred of two men – one British, one German – lasted over forty years, through three wars and over two continents. How many had died as a result of their bitter feud would never be known, but there was only one way it was ever going to end – one of them must die! […]

Steel Inferno

Issue Number: 5241

Uxton was a prime target. It was home to one of the largest filling stations in Britain, which sent train upon train laden with munitions to the front lines. This, and its sleepy small‑town defence, made it a tasty looking objective for German sabotage. The only thing standing in the Nazi operatives’ way was two […]

Fire in the Sky

Issue Number: 5240

Squadron Leader Ricky Lomax stared sadly across the barbed wire that stood between him and freedom. To the German prison camp guards, he was just another RAF pilot shot down over the Fatherland. But to the rest of his squadron back at their base in England, he was the lowest of the low. For he […]

The Final Hunt

Issue Number: 5239

Police Sergeant Dick McKay had long retired after the glory of hunting down an escaped SS POW from a sleepy camp in the Scottish Highlands. Now he was more interested in carrots than criminal capers, as he tended his cosy allotment. But when a body is found buried under one of the Nissen huts in […]

Trigger Trap

Issue Number: 5238

It was an ordinary, standard issue British Lee Enfield rifle. But after being dropped muzzle-down into soft mud, it picked up a hidden extra: a plug of clag that hardened deep in the barrel. That rifle was now a deadly trap. It would kill the first person who pulled the trigger…   Story: CG Walker […]

Ramsey’s Raiders: Off the Rails

Issue Number: 5237

Ramsey’s Raiders have a train to catch! Only this train is mounted with deadly 88mm cannons that are pounding the British lines! But with Captain Jimmy Ramsey out of action and Sergeant Derek Jarvis second‑guessing their every move, will Lieutenant Tex Hall lead the Raiders to victory…or will their mission go off the rails?!   […]
