Operation Eclipse

Issue Number: 5198

To take out Germany’s strongest U-boat base would need a ship packed with explosives, a bunch of blokes with nerves of steel… and an eclipse of the sun. The eclipse could be counted on, but what about the cowardly captain and his crew of convicts? Could they do the job? They had to – thousands […]

The Flying Fox

Issue Number: 5196

A damp, soggy sandbank is not the ideal runway, but Pilot Officer Mike Hickling was using one as he battled to coax his Gladiator into the air. And, to make matters worse, a mate of his was lying flat on the wing, holding on like grim death. All this with a German launch slamming over […]

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.

Tommy’s War

Issue Number: 5181

November 11th, 1918. Armistice. The war was over… or so most thought, but some still held to the regime of battle, and kept a tight hold of their prisoners. All the Weekes family wanted was to be together again, but Tommy lay far away on the other side of the shrapnel filled fields of No […]

Father and Son

Issue Number: 5180

For many generations, there had been a Count von Regenskirch in the German Army. This duty had passed from father to son – but then, during the First World War, the Count was killed and his small son disappeared. But that child was not dead. Grown to manhood, he now stood proudly in military uniform. […]

Harriet’s War
