Hoodoo Ship, cover by Ken Barr

At long last, Sub-lieutenant Roy Palmer and merchant captain Brian Miller had found the island supply base from which U-boat packs slipped anchor to attack Allied convoys in the South Atlantic.

Atlantic Killer

A swift trail of bubbles — if you see it and a roar like a thousand express trains crashing — if you hear it. That’s all the warning you get when a torpedo hits home. Lieutenant Commander Dave Miller lost his destroyer just like that to Kapitan Karl von Sturm, top Nazi U-Boat ace known […]

THE GOLDEN GUN

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 […]

Flying Flea

When war came to the island of Silau, south east of New Guinea, the pilots of a Royal Australian Air Force squadron laughed at two freakish-looking planes already operating there. “Pop” Onslow and his son, Willie, ran an air-freight business which used an ancient Vickers Virginia bomber and an odd little crate called a “Flying […]

Pete Owen was a fine pilot in a Mosquito night-fighter squadron, with a growing number of kills to his name.

But why was he […]

Strange things happen in the African desert — especially in the “Region of Devils”. But these three lost L.R.D.G. soldiers had never seen anything as weird as this…being helped in their desperate mission by Persian soldiers straight from the pages of history 2000 years ago. “Prof”, Jack and Duncan didn’t know whether to be glad […]

Rogue Pilot

Sergeant Pilot Tim Cooney was a real happy-go-lucky chap. Some said he was just plain careless. Nothing really bothered him or took the grin off his face — nothing, that is, until he discovered the Germans testing a new and terrifying glider bomb. However, when Tim made his report, no one would believe him. They […]

King Of The Spits

The letter read: “I, Count Ernst Von Steiger, the Red Arrow challenge the leader of this squadron to a personal duel at noon tomorrow. I shall be waiting at 16,000 feet at British Map Ref. 481609.” And just before noon a lone Spitfire took off. At the controls was young Mike Carson, the pilot they […]

Jim Fraser was a born Commando. Tough, dependable, daring. But there came a day when they stripped him of his Commando shoulder flashes and his beloved green beret. They took away his tommy gun and gave him a shovel. Almost before he knew it he was transferred to the pick and shovel brigade, the Pioneer […]
