Black Schneider

Issue Number: 5168

For Sergeant Bill Kane this was the last straw. Bill had run up against “Black Schneider” — Nazi Major Schneider and his mobile desert commandos — the most feared striking force in the desert.

Dangerous Dawn

Issue Number: 5056

Look at the map of the South Pacific. Between Australia and New Guinea, you’ll find the Coral Sea.

Then, there was his brother, Colin – just a war correspondent, […]
