Sucker Punch, cover by Ian Kennedy

Captured by S.S. men for desertion and sentenced to firing squad by his own countrymen, German naval officer, Franz Beuten, was saved by British Special Service operatives, Lieutenant Tom Dell, Sergeant Mark Lyle and Corporal Roger Crown, on duty deep behind enemy lines. After Germany’s surrender, the S.A.S. troop was tasked with tracking down Nazi […]

DEADLY TRIANGLE

Issue Number: 4954
Deadly Triangle

Shooting up unsuspecting British trucks in a captured Hurricane was just one of the dirty tricks played by Erich von Werner — a pilot hated by his own men as much as by the British. The feeling was mutual, particularly for Luftwaffe pilot Carl Lutz and Ted Bull of the R.A.F. — two men linked […]

MASTER SPY

Issue Number: 4950
Master Spy

A good spy never gets caught. He tries to become so much part of the enemy set-up that he’s never even suspected…until it’s too late. And, even then, the best of the breed always have an escape route — even although it’s back into the lion’s den!

FLYING FEUD

Flying Feud

As a tail gunner on an Avro Lancaster bomber, Sergeant Lex Duffield was used to danger in the sky. However, more even danger soon appeared in the unlikely form of a fellow Lanc rear gunner — the reckless and short-tempered Sergeant Tommy Deakin — and inevitably they clashed. Fate soon intervened and they faced a […]

THE GOLDEN GUN

Issue Number: 4948
The Golden Gun

A real hero’s gun. A Colt .45, the long barrel gleaming with gold plate, cunningly engraved. The butt of ivory, the whole weapon as perfectly balanced as a bird and on a hair trigger. Many a time cowboy film star Brad Landon had got himself out of a movie tight corner with a lightning draw […]

The Experts

Lieutenant Doug MacKay was a non-nonsense agent of the Special Operations Executive — used to doing things by the book.

[…]

COWARD IN KHAKI

Issue Number: 4946
Coward In Khaki

Men’s characters don’t often change. If a man’s a crook in civilian life, he’ll probably be a crook in the army. That’s how it was with Vic Wardley. Everyone knew him to be a crook — and a coward as well. So why would an Intelligence Corps major single him out for a vital job […]

UNDEFEATED

Issue Number: 4945
Undefeated

Troubled by a past encounter early in his career, Royal Navy Lieutenant Commander Alec Weston soon became a respected, if intense, skipper. He was determined that his submarine, H.M.S. Undefeated, would live up to her name — therefore he pushed his crew and the vessel hard. When ferrying a Special Boat Section assault team on […]

GHOST SQUADRON

Issue Number: 4944
Ghost Squadron

Flak, machine-guns, searchlights, enemy fighters — these the Nazi pilots knew and could handle. These things were dangerous, all right — but they didn’t turn a man’s blood to ice water in his veins, they didn’t paralyse his hands on the controls in utter, freezing terror… But the new weapon used by the R.A.F. night-fighters […]

ICE-COLD COMBAT

Ice-Cold Combat

When their Handley Page Hampden bomber was shot down, Pilot Officer Drew Grange and Sergeant Adam Weir were stranded on the icy border between Norway and Russia. Helped by a couple of civilian hunters, the R.A.F. men were soon embroiled in a fight for survival. Finding an unarmed, abandoned Tiger Moth skiplane, they took to […]
