The Fighting Phantom

Issue Number: 5148

Bert Graham is 50. Serving as a major in the army, he’s nearly as fit and tough as he was way back in the war when he was a sergeant. He has some really great stories, but none match the one when he and his mates were stranded behind enemy lines – and Bert took […]

Heroes’ Hill

Issue Number: 5144

It wasn’t much of a hill…it didn’t look important but it was a natural observation point that looked out over the Dutch countryside for miles around. And it would make history in its own little way. Lieutenant Sandy Sanderson’s orders were to take the hill in any way possible to cover the oncoming Allied offensive. […]

Midnight Menace

Issue Number: 5132

They called it Operation Midnight Sun. It had never been done before, but the Nazis thought they had found a new way of winning a battle – and maybe even the war. It meant turning night into day – and they were clever enough to find a way of doing even that. But it takes […]

Mission of No Return

Issue Number: 5104

Twickenham, Murrayfield or Cardiff Arms Park would have cheered them to the echo for their accurate passing. But it wasn’t a rugger ball the paratroopers passed to each other as they dashed across the German line of fire. It was a deadly bazooka shell – and they weren’t playing just to add a few points […]

Clash of Giants

Issue Number: 5100

The British Cruiser tanks swarmed over the desert. As fine a show of armoured might as ever gladdened an infantry regiment who needed help. But beneath the tank crews’ khaki uniforms beat Nazi hearts with nothing but hate in them. And soon the barrels of British guns would be turning on British troops… Story: Allan Art: Bellalta […]

Frightened Hero

Issue Number: 5092

A white flag is the signal of surrender. Some say it’s also the banner of cowardice that no real fighting man would ever carry. Corporal Bob Tracy showed the white flag, but just try telling him he’s a coward and see what happens! Story: Allan Art: V. Fuente Cover: Penalva
