Issue Number: 4801
A Tiger's Tale

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

FLYING FOOLS

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. Then a big Texan pilot called Mike McClusky arrived on the scene; a daring, slap-happy flier who roared, “Get in and mix […]

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.

SHIELD OF TRUTH

Issue Number: 4798
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.

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.

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 […]

Duel In The Snow

Climbing dazedly from the shattered cockpit of his hijacked Zero, Pilot Officer Bill O’Hara was relieved to find himself still in one piece. But his troubles weren’t over yet.

THE ROGUE MISSION

Issue Number: 4793
The Rogue Mission

The Home Guard never served overseas, did they? And they certainly didn’t take their improvised armoured vehicles to the east of Africa to fight Axis forces, did they? Of course they didn’t. Or did they? A bunch of Home Guardsmen from Hecklethwaite might beg to differ, for they know the story of… The Rogue Mission

CALL HIM HERO

Issue Number: 4792
Call Him Hero

Look how young Sergeant-pilot Jack Sherwood left a Nazi prison camp – on the end of a home-made, twelve-foot vaulting pole! And this is only one of a hair-raising series of close shaves Jack survives in this great yarn. Sprinter, weight-lifter, jumper and vaulter, this crack user athlete has to pull out he knows before […]
