It was a warm, sunny day in 1944 when, out of the blue, a mysterious bolt of lightning struck paratrooper Frankie Walsh. His C.O. called it a freak accident, but it triggered a domino effect of even stranger events… events that were to send Frankie spiraling through time itself!

Take a look at this list: dispatch-rider’s motorcycle, German staff car, Matilda Tank, Panzer Mark IV. It takes a lot of training, plus plenty practice, to become a really top driver of even one of that lot. No man could handle them all like an ace.

No man? Wait a minute, you haven’t heard of ‘Wheels’ Riley…

In 1936, when Spain erupted into a vicious civil war, the world watched through their magnifying glasses. With Hitler and Mussolini supporting the Nationalists and Stalin supporting the Republicans – the war seemed like a practice for the cataclysmic events that were to follow.

British reporters, Pete Beckford and Owen Carver were sent in to report on the tense situation. But soon the reporters found themselves deep within the thick of it…

Young Sergeant Pilots, Stewart Wright and Tommy Miller, did not think much of their new squadron – and even less of their squadron leader. But flying their outdated Brewster Buffalo aircraft into battle against efficient Japanese Zero fighters, they discovered just how wrong they were when the chips were down.

They had found pride in their squadron.

In the final bloody hours of the Vietnam war, the P.A.V.N. were at the gates of Saigon. The U.S. embassy was the last refuge for the South Vietnamese who worked for the American government.

But as the final choppers ferried the last of the workers to safety, Bill Evans realized that his best friend, Van Thieu, would not make it to the facility in time to evacuate – meaning certain death…

Down, down, down screamed the Hurribombers, their pilots letting the bombs only at the last possible second. Their target was a chateau which sheltered Brigadefuhrer Helmut Groot, the Nazi killer whose very name put shivers down the spine of all who heard it. And in case the bombs failed, Captain Steve Simpson and a small band of men were playing a desperate game of “Hunt the Killer”.

They all hated Groot so much they were praying the bombs would miss so they could settle the score in their own way.

In 1938, on the eve of the Second World War, British Agent Ned Finch is on a top secret mission in the middle Eastern Kingdom of Majaffa. But, after Finch is injured by the Germans, petroleum scientist Ulysses ‘Danger’ Doyle is called to finch’s investigation. Something isn’t adding up though. Why are the Germans building pipelines in the desert when there’s no oil?

An amateur poet with a gifted mind, Danger read the entire works of Sherlock Holmes before he was five. He loved a good mystery, but never expected to find himself bang in the middle of one…

Not everybody likes guessing games, but Corporal Bill Smith was quite good at them – which was just as well. For the guess he and some others were about to make might ensure victory…or cost the lives of thousands of Allied soldiers.

And Bill didn’t have nearly enough time to make up his mind…

Nestled on the sleepy Isle of Man, three men had a deep secret – they were part of a German spy cell that had infiltrated Britain and Ireland. One among them held a bigger secret, the desire to win the world-famous Isle of Man Tourist Trophy motorbike race.

With World War Two raging, there was little time for races… But little did the spy know, soon he would be forced to… Race – or Die!

With weapons and ammunition stolen from the Nazis, two British soldiers lurked in the ragged hills of Crete, keeping alive by always shooting first – and never missing.

And on the plains below, Major Joachim Mauch ranted at his crack paratroopers as they failed time after time to bring these two desperate men to a halt. For Mauch had tangled with them before and come off worst. Now he wanted revenge… but first he’d have to capture them in this deadly game of hide and seek.

In 1942 the Japanese Northern Army invaded American soil, capturing the island of Attu, off the coast of Alaska. For nineteen days America battled against Japan in the only land battle of World War Two fought on American territory.

Inspired by true events, Sergeant Bill Johnson leads an American Infantry Division into the mountains of Attu, guided by an Aleutian woman, to retake the island from the Japanese. But, faced with freezing conditions and the relentless Colonel Yamasaki, Johnson does not know if his men are prepared for the horrors facing them.

For someone desperately seeking safety, joining the army on the brink of a full-scale war might not seem like the wisest move. But when your name is high on a Mafia hit-list, escape to battle isn’t such a crazy idea after all.

For, surely, even the Mafia couldn’t track you down to a battlefield thousands of miles away…could they?

Lieutenant Tom Dell’s S.A.S. squad are back – and this time they have a delicate situation to handle. After the team capture a German scientist who had worked on the development of a Nazi super bomb, Soviet officer’s kidnap Major Jake Ryan. The Russians want to trade Ryan for the scientist – but Tom isn’t willing to negotiate…

The concluding adventure of Tom’s team from “Sucker Punch” (Commando #4979) and “Hunt and Harrass” (Commando #5015)

Massive – that was the only word to describe Commando John Littlejohn. He stood well over six feet tall, with shoulders like an ox, a barrel-like chest, and legs like tree trunks. Yet he could move with the speed of a cat when he had to.

He was the ideal guy to have along if ever you ran into trouble – and his bunch of blokes seemed to find trouble just about everywhere they went.

When Jimmy Hopper was drafted into the Vietnam war, he decided to become a combat medic – not because it was easy, because he wanted to help people. But Jimmy was unprepared for the horrors of the Vietnam war. The enemy was clever and ruthless with a staunch determination to drive out the Americans. Jimmy was even more unprepared to see the familiar face of his cousin, Rick…

There was bad blood between the two cousins.

Colin Cooper was no stranger to fear. From the day he nearly fell off a church roof, it had gnawed away at the back of his mind. Then came Norway and more fear when as a young private, he was injured and left behind by his mates as they retreated before the advancing German invaders.

 

His problems seemed to be over, however, when a friendly Norwegian showed him the way to Sweden and safety – until out stepped a Nazi patrol and Colin was living with fear once more…

Corporal Mike Lowry is the only surviving member of his squad. He watched as his friends were gunned down by the Nazis while trying to surrender. He was wounded, nursed back to health by an elderly French villager who knows the horror of war all too well. Now, Mike trains as a Commando, hell bent on revenge – any German will do, but Mike prays that fate will lead him back to SS Lieutenant Hans Hueter, the man who massacred his friends.

But, that wasn’t the first time violent acts were committed on that sacred ground – what other mysteries lie within the ruins there?

 

Sam Blake was fed up. He’d come from Canada to join the R.A.F. to fight Nazis as a fully qualified pilot, only to find he had to learn to fly all over again, the official way. Then they kicked him out of a fighter squadron. “Too reckless and irresponsible,” they said. “Give him a bomber. He can’t pull any wild stunts in that.”

But Sam saw this as a chance for real glory. He flew his bomber as if it were a sprightly Spitfire and even turned on Nazi fighters, What a guy!

 

Flanked by forests and a vast lake, Castle Falcone stood isolated, the prisoners inside eager for their release. The Third Reich was on its knees but an S.S. squadron was heading to Castle Falcone – their orders to liquidate the prisoners.

No one would have ever expected an unlikely alliance of Germans, Americans and Italians would band together to protect… The Castle.

To be a pilot… that’s all Jan Solecik wanted. Trouble was, he’d been thrown off pilot training courses and was now stuck in the Polish Army, fighting alongside British troops in the North African desert.

As he looked up at the aircraft which fought in the sky above him, not even he could imagine the strange series of events which would one day put him in the pilot’s seat again.

The Allies were in crisis. A massive German blitzkrieg offensive pushed the British forces into a desperate retreat. In the chaos, a Matilda tank crew, led by Sergeant Jack Taylor, was hit hard… Jack was the only survivor. Marooned in a small village, he began to cover the Allied retreat to Dunkirk. That’s when Sergeant Jack Taylor was pushed to the edge.

Jack had to make a drastic decision… Protect the lives of his new crew – or get revenge for the deaths of his old one…

Fog in the English Channel; visibility zero! Desperate Germans and equally desperate Britishers all searching frantically for one small rubber dinghy.

Who finds it?                      Why is it so important?

 

In Berlin, 1944, Japanese army Captain Isamu Nagata secretly yearns for peace as he tries to mourn the loss of his younger brother, shot down by British soldiers in Burma. But, Nagata does not have time to grieve as he accidentally kills a German looter, leading to an all-out manhunt against him.

Now, on the run from his supposed German allies, Nagata will do whatever it takes to escape. Surrender, for him, is never an option.

Trooper Bill Bourne had the annoying habit of wandering off without telling anybody – and that often got him into trouble. Now, as his long-suffering sergeant set off to fetch him back from his latest jaunt, it seemed that the Trouble Trooper had landed in deeper bother than usual as shots sounded ahead.

But concern turned to disbelief when the sergeant finally found Bill – trading bullets with French soldiers!
