Knight Of The Eagles

England, 1405 AD. Peasants in Somerset wanted rid of the Allinghams, their feudal overlords. The Allinghams’ men were as brutal and cruel as their masters.

In the summer of 1944, a frightening new weapon was unleashed against the war-weary British – the dreaded V1 flying bomb.

Where there were […]

D-Day Dodgers

In 1944 someone named the servicemen in Italy the D-Day Dodgers; as though somehow the war they were fighting was a cushy number compared to the battles in France.

Convict Commandos - Evil In The East

The jungle can be a hostile place, besides the strength-sapping heat and humidity, dangerous animals and plants abound.

That was the position that “Jelly” Jakes of the Convict Commandos found himself […]

Death On The Wind

Staff-Sergeant Harry Sale of the Special Air Service had fought his way out of more tight corners than he cared to remember.

Issue Number: 4777
Sky Warriors

Towards the end of the Second World War, the Balkan Air Force operated over Greece and Yugoslavia, supplying the Partisans and fighting Axis air power.

SEA FURY

Issue Number: 4776
Sea Fury

Spray lashed the cockpit screen, blinding the big pilot as he fought the bucking controls to belly-land the crippled Albacore in the choppy sea.
