Bombs Away!

Issue Number: 5236

Ted Whitaker was a bomber pilot who never took unnecessary risks. He always got his crew home in one piece. Then he was sent to another squadron, and the first person he met was his new CO. Squadron Leader Simon Naylor was reckless to the point of madness and expected his pilots to be the […]

The Last Nazis

Issue Number: 5222

The Nazi dream was shattered, broken and splintered between the forces of the Allies. And yet some diehards would still not admit defeat. Somehow, somewhere they were certain that the sinister swastika would rule again. Which was why a group of them set sail on a war-weary U-boat as the ruins of Germany blazed. And […]

Jet Blitz

Issue Number: 5208

Hitler’s latest secret weapon, the lightning-fast Messerschmitt 262 jets were unmatched by the Allies in speed. So the RAF had to go down and nail this menace for good, the hard way – on the ground. But to dive your Tempest right inside a hangar full of a dozen jets and drop your bombs – […]

Jinx Pilot

Issue Number: 5204

The Luftwaffe were after him, the Germans were hunting him, even his own mates in the RAF were out for Pete Kelly’s head. If ever there was a harum‑scarum fighting fool, it was Kelly. Imagine it! What kind of a man takes off in a brand new Spitfire for a sweep over Italy and ends […]

The Joker

Issue Number: 5202

Joker – the fifty-third playing card in a pack, or one who jokes or jests… that’s what it says in the dictionary, and there was no doubt that Bob Dyson could joke and jest with the best, a real card to have in any unit. Not even flying bullets could stop him fooling around, but […]

Jinx Raid

Issue Number: 5190

One by one the Heinkel bombers of the Luftwaffe lifted into the air from their French airfield, heavily laden with bombs, setting a course to blitz London. And across the Channel, the defenders waited – radar teams, air crews, anti-aircraft gunners, rescue workers. They knew these bombers could hit hard, but they were determined that […]

Battling Boneshakers

Issue Number: 5182

They were “wood-and-wire wonders”, these early aircraft of World War One – hard enough to fly, let alone fight in! To make things worse for the pilots of the newly formed Royal Flying Corps, the enemy were quick enough to perfect a gun that fired successfully through the propeller arc of their Fokker Eindeckers.   […]

Sea of Secrets

Issue Number: 5170

When Tim Elder, young and keen, his sub lieutenant’s rank badge shining new, received a posting to the Mediterranean, he found that he had joined a part of the Royal Navy that he knew nothing about. For instance, what was the secret of the grubby fishing vessel that made the Germans determined to sink her? […]
