Police Sergeant Dick McKay had long retired after the glory of hunting down an escaped SS POW from a sleepy camp in the Scottish Highlands. Now he was more interested in carrots than criminal capers, as he tended his cosy allotment. But when a body is found buried under one of the Nissen huts in the camp, Dick is called in to find the culprit.

 

With the war over, little evidence, and sparse suspects, will Dick be able to catch the crook in his final hunt?

Squadron Leader Ricky Lomax stared sadly across the barbed wire that had stood between him and freedom. To the German prison camp guards, he was just another RAF pilot shot down over the Fatherland. But to the rest of the squadron back at their base in England, he was the lowest of the low. For he had jumped out of his damaged Lancaster over Germany, leaving his crew to their fate.

 

At least, that was what everybody had said – and Ricky had no way of proving otherwise…

Uxton was a prime target. It was home to one of the largest filling stations in Britain, which sent trains upon train laden with munitions to the front lines. This, and its sleepy small-town defence, made it a tasty looking objective for German sabotage.

 

The only thing standing in the Nazi operatives’ way was two incompetent lieutenants haplessly trying to stop them turning the tiny village into a blazing Steel Inferno.

The Hatred of two men – one British, one German – lasted over forty years, through three wars over two continents.

 

How many had died as a result of their bitter feud would never be known, but there was only one way it was ever going to end – one of them must die!

Joe Capshaw had a rough start to the war. Thrown in at the deep end, he soon found himself isolated and alone in enemy territory – the sole recipient of vital intelligence. Trouble was, he was now a POW! With the help of the elusive ‘Bakerloo Line’ he would try and make his escape, but the stakes were raised when the determined SS Hauptsturmfuhrer Weber began his hunt.

The dogs of war had been unleashed, as Joe tried to deliver The Message.

The Whitaker was a bomber pilot who never took unnecessary risks. He always got his crew home in one piece.

Then he was sent to another squadron, and the first person he met was his new CO. Squadron Leader Simon Naylor was reckless to the point of madness and expected his pilots to be the same. And what was worse, he was the one guy Ted hated most in the whole world…

Ramsey’s Raiders have a train to catch! Only this train is mounted with deadly 88mm cannons that are pounding the British lines!

 

But with Captain Jimmy Ramsey out of action and Sergeant Derek Jarvis second-guessing their every move, will Lieutenant Tex Hall lead the raiders to victory… or will their mission go off the rails?!

It was an ordinary, standard issue British Lee Enfield rifle. But after being dropped muzzle-down into soft mud, it picked up a hidden extra: a plug of clag that hardened deep in the barrel.

 

That rifle was now a deadly trap. It would kill the first person who pulled the trigger…

At the Dunkirk Evacuation, Sergeant Ronnie Malloy had saved the lives of two young privates – one a solid soldier, the other full of fear and doubt. Four years and two sets of stripes later, the trio are reunited in training for the greatest push towards the liberation of Europe: Operation Overlord.

 

The young sappers may have a lot of work though, but whatever comes, Malloy will make sure they are the… First Men Ashore.

“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. By boot, gun and rock-hard fist, Joe smashed his way across Europe, searching for one cruel Nazi who’d once tricked and beaten him in the ring – SS Captain Kurt Kleiner.

 

Joe didn’t rest until he faced him again with the gloves on, in a fight to the finish!

They called Operation Aubrey one of the finest and most spectacular exploits of the Royal Marine Commandos, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing.

 

Every day the sun rose with more blood and battling, each Commando uncertain that they would see another dawn.

Pete Barton was a very secret agent. He was known only as L’Ombre – “The Shadow”. His dangerous job took him far behind the Nazi lines to occupied France where he ruled second to none as a saboteur and Resistance fighter.

 

Even Pete realised that his luck would run out one day, but he never dreamed that the Nazis, the Maquis and a bunch of British Commandos would all be on his trail, every one of them itching to be the first to put a bullet in him!

In 1990, the HMS Ulmo glided through the cold waters of the North Atlantic. Its lights probing the dark, foggy night, searching…

 

Beneath the hulking giant lay something old and long forgotten. But someone on board the Ulmo knew its secrets.

The British destroyer pumped a stream of shells into the cave. Whatever was in there was taking a real hammering.

 

And just what was in the cave? Well, a U-boat for one thing. A huge hoard of fuel and explosives for another. And lastly, there were three British airmen… three guys in dead trouble.

Private Ned Nolan ran. He ran through the trenches, he ran through the rain, he ran through the mud, the poison gas and the battle-torn wastes of no man’s land.

 

When he had a message to deliver, he would run through thick and thin – but all that running got him into trouble. He ran straight into it, and a shell hole, down in the … Mud and Mayhem.

It was another day of doom for Peter Cobb, his corvette sinking beneath him, crippled by the Luftwaffe and the German navy. There had been another equally grim day not so long ago when his great friend and fellow skipper had been ruthlessly executed by a sadist Nazi U-boat commander,

 

All this had gone far enough, as far as Peter was concerned. The next victims of a day of doom would be the enemy… and there was an awful lot to pay back!

In 1935 anti-semitism became law in Germany, and Jakob Rosenbaum and his family quickly made their escape. Determined to find revenge for the loss of his homeland, he enlists with the British Army – but convincing his new allies that he can be trusted is no cakewalk.

 

Trapped between enemy and Allied lines, Jakob must rise above it all to prove himself, but first he must discover what it means… To Wear The Uniform

It was just a box, metal-bound and padlocked. It probably contained documents, because an army major was guarding it.

 

But to Sergeant Jim Templeton and his mates it soon became a sinister, hated thing, a prize for which men would cheat and steal – and even kill!

Trapped in the confines of the Selarang Barracks, Sergeant Pete Mellion couldn’t be further away from his turbulent past – that is until his old nemesis, Lieutenant Reg Williams, is assigned the same work detail building the Thai-Burma Railway.

 

Slaving away in the intense heat of the jungle, can these two foes put aside their feud in order to escape? Or will Hellfire Pass consume their very souls.

The Nazi dream was shattered, broken and splintered between the forces of the Allies. And yet some diehards would still not admit defeat. Somehow, somewhere they were certain that the sinister swastika would rule again.

 

Which was why a group of them set sail on a war-weary U-boat as the ruins of Germany blazed. And with them they carried the seeds of a new reign of terror to unleash on the world.
