Demon of Darkness

Issue Number: 5652

Twenty thousand feet up in the black void of the night over England. Nerves tense, mouth dry, hand clutching the control column, thumb hovering over the firing button, eyes straining out into the dark as the thundering engines pull you into the nothingness ahead of you. That’s what it’s like to be a night-fighter pilot… […]

Fire in the Forest

Issue Number: 5646

They called themselves Werewolves. They dressed all in black and operated only at night, in the forests of southern Germany.

Now the peaceful little village echoed with the sound of invading troops with all their modern equipment —trucks, motorcycles, machine guns, mortars. Surely there […]

A Soldier’s Honour

Issue Number: 5624

As the German half-track hurtled towards the two men, Captain Peter Brookes grabbed the startled German officer and hauled him to safety. But who was driving the vehicle?
