Iron Cross Tommy

Issue Number: 5392

Dick Clark was a fully-trained British Commando. He could put a bullet through the target every time, fight savagely with bare hands or a knife — and win! He was the kind of man who would strike fear into an enemy’s heart. How then did he end up in German uniform, the toast of the […]

Big Joe

Issue Number: 5232

“Battling Barton”, British heavyweight champ, became Sergeant Joe Barton by the time D-Day dawned. No-one got ahead of Joe when the great advance started.

If a Stuka dive-bombing attack was decided on, they got into hiding an hour before it began. They knew exactly […]

Everybody had thought a lot of Inspector Harry Andrews of the Malayan Police. He was a real man, all guts. Pity he had been captured and probably killed by the Japanese when the invasion over-ran his outpost. He’d put up quite a fight, though. Then, there was his brother, Colin – just a war correspondent, […]
