Deadly Convoy

Issue Number: 5134

Nobody could doubt the nerve and spirit of Sam Wilson. He was keen to the core, always ready to pile into the action. He was tested to the full as a hard-pressed infantryman, and went on to become a well-trained Commando. He had only one weakness – he didn’t know when to count to ten […]

The Home Front

Issue Number: 5133

German spies? Dead cattle? Murder? Wilhelmina Home came to Britain to volunteer as a WAAC in the First World War but she soon found herself embroiled in a plot worthy of her favourite author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Midnight Menace

Issue Number: 5132

They called it Operation Midnight Sun. It had never been done before, but the Nazis thought they had found a new way of winning a battle – and maybe even the war. It meant turning night into day – and they were clever enough to find a way of doing even that. But it takes […]

The Phantom’s Revenge

Issue Number: 5131

In the summer of 1808, in the early months of the Peninsular war, five prophecies of death were given to those aboard HMS Phantom. First, in the shadow of a burning cross.

Air Pirates

Issue Number: 5130

Officially they were called Forward Air Controllers, but air pirates was nearer the mark.

Roy Armour was one of these men. He flew with a secret […]

Following the eerie melody, Friedel discovered a pair […]

Terror Drop

Issue Number: 5128

Right into the heart of the Gestapo HQ they had come – six Polish deserters led by an English officer. Their mission was to capture a Gestapo official – alive. But for Lieutenant Ron Barclay there was another quest – he was trying to find his father, who had vanished in Poland when the Nazis […]

Last Boat Home

Issue Number: 5127

The Blitzkreig had thundered through France leaving carnage in its wake. For many men, the British Expeditionary Force’s retreat ended long before the beaches at Dunkirk. But one thing was certain: Lieutenant Jack Dodd was going to get his men home. Even as they huddled, stranded in a coastal village, with no hope of the […]

Home Guard Hero

Issue Number: 5126

First they called them the Local Defence Volunteers, but then they became the Home Guard. But the name didn’t matter to the thousands of volunteers aged between sixteen and sixty-five who enrolled in 1940 to help Britain face the Nazi menace. Men like veteran First World War marksman Alec Fraser and his squad. Based on […]

E-boat Strike!

Issue Number: 5125

Adriatic Sea. 1943 Lieutenant Ron Logan and his SBS unit were speeding along, hoping not to run into anyone else foolish to be out on such a miserable night. But they weren’t alone. Before they could disappear into the fog, A MAS boat spotted them and the SBS men fought bitterly to shake off their […]
