Valley of Flame

Issue Number: 5744

Sergeant Bull Moore, a tough veteran who’d been in more tight corners than he could remember, had never met an officer like Lieutenant Stephen Wylie before.

Issue Number: 5740

The Desperate Men

Issue Number: 5712

Cut off far behind enemy lines, you’re fighting to get back to your own troops. For food and ammunition you have to rely on what you can steal, and for transport — well, it’s your own aching feet, for mile after weary mile. Of course, you could always steal a car from the nearest enemy […]

Danger At Dawn

Issue Number: 5704

The American military policeman, fatally wounded, gasped out his last words — in German! And that was more than enough to set British Captain Bob Lawton thinking hard.

Trail Blazers

Issue Number: 5676
