The Fugitives

Issue Number: 5528

On and on, over the endless desert wastes went the thirteen desperate Nazis and their two prisoners, Lieutenant Steve Roland and Brigadier Alan Warren.

Swamp of Terror

Issue Number: 5484

Lieutenant Sandy Sanderson’s orders were to take the hill in any way possible to cover the oncoming Allied offensive. […]
