Day of Doom

Issue Number: 5226

It was another day of doom for Peter Cobb, his corvette sinking beneath him, crippled by the Luftwaffe and the German Navy. There had been another equally grim day not so long ago when his great friend and fellow skipper had been ruthlessly executed by a sadist Nazi U-boat commander. All this had gone far […]

Cave of Secrets

Issue Number: 5224

The British destroyer pumped a stream of shells into the cave. Whatever was in there was taking a real hammering. And just what was in the cave? Well, a U-boat for one thing. A huge hoard of fuel and explosives for another. And lastly, there were three British airmen… three guys in dead trouble.   […]

Viking Breed

Issue Number: 5078

A long barrier of rocks, jagged reefs below the seething sea – it was a seaman’s nightmare at any time, but now it was dark… and misty. And hammering along at top speed was an ex-whaling ship in Norwegian hands with Nazi E-boats in hot pursuit! Story: Ian Clark Art: Peter Foster Cover: Jeff Bevan

Jinx and Jonah

Issue Number: 5074

In the bitter Battle of the Atlantic, David Collins was thought to be a jinx. If that was true, it was a jinx that could kill his younger brother in the deadly fight with the German U-boats. Story: K. P. MacKenzie Art: Gordon C. Livingstone Cover: Jeff Bevan

Grenade!

Issue Number: 5050

The Mills Number 36 was the standard British infantry grenade of World War Two. Its operation was simple.

But one particular grenade would never be forgotten by the men whose paths it […]

Go Down Fighting

Issue Number: 5006

The British motor launch was doomed, pounded by an Italian MAS boat and now also coming under fire from approaching German E-boas. For Lieutenant Norman Ryan it was a bitter moment, but he and his crew would fight on to the end. After all, where there’s life, there’s hope… Story: Ian Clark Art: Peter Foster Cover: Jeff […]

Pirate Patrol

Issue Number: 4990
Pirate Patrol, cover by Jeff Bevan

Nick Borley cursed the day he had been switched from commanding a fast motor launch to take over an antiquated schooner. And never more so than now as they ran before a storm, the sails and rigging in tatters after the Luftwaffe had paid a call. Up ahead lay the hostile enemy-held coast and at […]

SUICIDE RUN!

Issue Number: 4842
Suicide Run

Bleak Point – a training area for Captain Jake Baron and his Royal Marine crews of high-speed launches packed with explosives. There they learned the perils of mechanical failure, rough seas, bad weather – and how to tackle enemy defences. They began to think, though, that the biggest danger came from their hosts and rivals […]

SMITH V SCHMIDT

Issue Number: 4818
Smith V Schmidt

A sniper was usually good – or dead. There were no half measures, for the first mistake was usually his last. Tim Smith and Willi Schmidt were just learning their deadly trade on different sides, their classroom the battlefields of Normandy. When their paths crossed the certainty grew that one of them must die – […]
