Issue Number: 4804
Tough Guy

Joe Brady was as tough as the Liverpool slums that had bred him – and, boy, he could hate! The many Nazis he met knew the cold ferocity which blazed in his eyes as he swept into battle, but they could tell no one. For dead men tell no tales.  

THE DEADLY WATERS

Issue Number: 4803
The Deadly Waters

When German forces invaded the Netherlands in 1940, Dutch Army Lieutenants Dirk Dreise and Ruud Aaker fought in the front line.

Eventually the tide of war turned and in 1944 they were back in their […]

SCHOOL FOR SPIES

Issue Number: 4802
School Of Spies

High on a rocky crag on the west coast of Scotland stood Whitecrest House, home of the Mackay family of Strathfiddich. Over the centuries its grim, stone walls had looked down on many tales of bravery, mystery and intrigue. Now, in the Second World War, it was being put to a peaceful purpose – a […]

A TIGER’S TALE

Issue Number: 4801
A Tiger's Tale

“Tiger!” – a cry that struck fear into many a soldier’s heart during the Second World War.

Issue Number: 4800
Flying Fools

Flight Lieutenant Roy Ogden was a pilot who fought and flew strictly by the book. He had a neat, tidy squadron that fought neat, tidy air battles and got quite good results…quite good.

EAGLES OF NEW EDEN

Issue Number: 4799
Eagles Of New Eden

After the tumultuous events of the English Civil War, Sergeant Samuel Carrick and his fellow Roundhead soldiers were victorious but disillusioned.

Here they worked hard and lived peacefully off the fruits […]

SHIELD OF TRUTH

Shield Of Truth

Buried under rock and sand in the North African Desert lay the Shield Of Truth. Made of bronze, highly polished, it revealed the truth about any man who looked into its mirror surface.

U-BOAT HUNT

Issue Number: 4797
U-Boat Hunt

After Royal Navy Lieutenant-Commander Robert Paterson lost his ship, his crew – and very nearly his life – to a prowling U-Boat in the Atlantic, he became obsessed with finding the enemy sub responsible. Robert was given command of a Q-Ship – a vessel that looked like a merchantman but was fitted with concealed guns […]

NIGHT STRIKE

Issue Number: 4796
Night Strike

A tough, battle-hardened platoon finds it hard to accept a young officer straight from home, especially when the signs are that he may be a coward. But Second Lieutenant Gary Bardon was no coward. His nerve had broken, true, but when the chips were down he went all out to prove he was twice the […]

LETHAL ATTRACTION

Issue Number: 4795
Lethal Attraction

It seemed a simple job; hop across to Belgium and find out what was causing strange magnetic field disturbances in the Ardennes region. So simple did it seem, that the Convict Commandos thought they might have time for a bit of relaxation along the way. Trouble, though, followed Britain’s most dangerous special missions unit like […]
