Ironhide

Ramree Massacre

Issue Number: 5295

Nearly one thousand men went into the mangrove swamps on Ramree Island — but how many would make it out? Everything on Ramree wanted the Japanese garrison dead.

Commandos vs. Zombies

Issue Number: 5277

In the freezing woods of Norway, dead men leave footprints in the snow. Their SS uniforms are riddled with bullet holes, their hearts frozen solid, and their rotting flesh frostbitten.

Harsh, disappointed words about the repeated ANZAC […]

Issue Number: 5103

Deafening engines rumbled over a small farmhouse in Norfolk. It was not the hum of a healthy plane, and the listeners below knew a crash landing would be imminent. What they didn’t know, and what they dreaded, was whether the aircraft was theirs… or Jerry’s. But, the next morning, when the four young workers of […]
