Jinx Raid

Issue Number: 5190

One by one the Heinkel bombers of the Luftwaffe lifted into the air from their French airfield, heavily laden with bombs, setting a course to blitz London.

Coward in the Cockpit

Issue Number: 5184

“You’re on your own, Warren. You tackle the Stukas and we’ll take care of the Focke Wulf 190s upstairs…” Sergeant Pilot Jack Warren’s face went as white as chalk, and sweat gathered on his brow as he heard his flight leader’s voice crackle in the earphones. Four Stukas were bombing the convoy. Nine FWs screamed […]

Raid over Heilbronn
