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.

Trouble, though, followed Britain’s most dangerous special missions unit like […]

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.

THE EAGLES STRIKE!

Issue Number: 4791
The Eagles Strike!

The mid-17th Century would turn out to the most turbulent time in England’s already tempestuous history. In summer 1642, a full-scale civil war erupted between the armies of the Royalist “Cavalier” and the Parliamentary “Roundheads.” Even the village of Teverton in the far south-west of Britain was caught up in the strife, and a centuries-old […]

FLAK FEVER

Issue Number: 4790
Flak Fever

Flieger Abwehr Kanone – a German mouthful that was shortened to “flak”, a word dreaded by every Allied pilot. It meant anti-aircraft guns, those multi-barrelled cannon and deadly 88-millimetre guns that could blast attackers out of the sky. Every important target in Nazi Europe bristled with them. Mosquito pilot Terry Franklin had met his fair […]

FROZEN BY FEAR

Issue Number: 4789
Frozen By Fear

Most jungle firefights are fought over short range and are over in a few minutes. Vision is limited and snap shots at targets are the order of the day.

GIANT KILLER
