Dead-eye Donovan

Issue Number: 5596

Central Italy, 1944. Corporal Arthur ‘Art’ Gunn limped into a British camp holding vital coded information.

Historians mark the Dodecanese campaign as one of the last major German victories of World War Two.

For something far older and deadlier than the Luftwaffe stalked the skies above […]
