The friendship between a butler, Anthony Sladen, and his master, Lord Jeffrey Mortimer, had stood the test of time and the length of two wars, but a deep resentment had festered because of it.

 

Mortimer’s son, Sebastian, despised Sladen. But Sladen had made a promise, one he would rather die than break.

Take a look at these warriors below. Quite a bunch aren’t they? Shirkers, deadbeats, men too old and boys too young to fight. Those were the types Lieutenant Dave Manning was ordered to take back to the base areas, away from the fighting line.

 

But Dave had other ideas about what he’d do with these men of his. He never told anyone about them – but people found out pretty quick. First to find out were the Nazis… and they didn’t like it one little bit!

Young Durwin has been given the highest honour a young man can receive – to become Housecarl for his Earl, Harold Godwinson. But with the death of king Edward and the right of succession disputed, can Durwin continue to swear fealty to a man who goes back on his word?

 

In a game of kings, bloody battles present difficult choices for a fighting man.

The island of Crete in the Mediterranean Sea has its fair share of ancient legends. The most famous and terrifying of these is about the Minotaur, a creature with the body of a man and the head of a bull.

 

By the time of the Second World War such a story was laughed at – but two Englishmen on the run from German paratroopers were not at all sure there wasn’t a lot of truth in it!

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. British soldiers, Indian soldiers, tropical diseases, poisonous spiders, deadly pythons, and most terrifying of all, saltwater crocodiles!

When a man has served for five years in the Foreign Legion you can reckon he knows a thing or two about fighting.

 

Dirk Lassiter had come through many a savage battle, but the grimmest fight of his whole life was against a man who knew just as much as he did – another Legionnaire!

The last place Private Bill Tasker expected to find himself on his new deployment was at sea – surely that was for the Navy boys? Yet there he was on the top-secret Blackland Sands sea fort, defending the Thames Estuary from V1 bombs and E-boats.

 

But now it’s thick with fog, he’s lost his pals and a sinister German commando team is hunting him down – would it be the end of his military career?

The German troops rushed into view just as the Fairey Battle was taking off. Immediately they fired at the aircraft desperate to prevent its escape.

 

With bullets flying all around him, this would be the supreme test of the pilot’s nerve… but the man behind the controls was a self-confessed coward who had run from enemy bullets before. What would he do now?

Jack Ramsey’s A-Force team have returned from their mission – a man down. Joe Bones, the Human Fly, is dead, but there’s no time to mourn. With tensions among them high, Jack and his team are sent back to Sarovia to steal a suitcase sized nuke from the fascists.

 

But there are choices Jack must make along the way, some that threaten the security of the world!

In Britain the newspaper hailed Clive Bellamy as a hero. But in the deserts of Libya his own men saw him as a coward. All that the enemy ever saw of him was his back.

 

Yet even cowards can change. Even Clive Bellamy, at last, had his one moment of glory.

In mid-1944, Hitler launched his vengeance weapons. These evil V-1 rockets struck at the heart of Britain’s cities, killing innocent people in their thousands. But Hitler wasn’t going to have it all his way, as his V-1 rockets began being caught in the talons of a squadron known as the Peregrine Falcons – experts in taking out the buzz bombs.

 

But there was a saboteur in the nest, one that Squadron Leader Henry Abercrombie never saw coming.

For every man who fought there, the Eastern Front was a living nightmare, a place of fear and horror where the cruel winters could kill just as effectively as an enemy bullet.

 

For Hans Mayer, it was a chilling change from his time in the French Foreign Legion, fighting under a hot sun against ill-armed tribesmen. But the Legion had betrayed him and handed him over to the Nazis. Now he was an outcast – the Wehrmacht, not the Legion, was his home.

Union Jack Jackson is back in his first adventure since 1991! Storming an island, going head-to-head with a Japanese sniper and saving his mates from a prisoner of war camp is all in a day’s work for Union Jack because…

 

“A Royal Marine never gives up!”

Mike Boyd cursed his luck. He’d sworn to prove himself a better pilot than his greatest rival, Ian Harper, yet here he was dangling helplessly from his parachute and being guarded by a Curtiss Tomahawk piloted by … guess who?

 

Yep, that man Harper!

A Monster is lurking in the shipping lanes north of Port Darwin – the size of which no-one has ever imagined. Freighter after freighter sink without trace and the only ones who can stop the beast have fought their way into a jail cell!

 

The Wombat and the Tiger crews are fierce in a bar fight – but Captain Griffin and Beaumont must put their differences aside if they are to take on this devil from the Far East.

When Hector Salway and a bunch of mates decided to go halfway around the world to repay a debt, they knew it wouldn’t be an easy task – their destination Siberia, with the Cold War between the West and East at its height.

 

What they didn’t know was that a vicious killer who had tried to murder them once before would already be there – and was now even more dangerous.

In 9 CE, over twenty-thousand men of the Roman Legions were on a perilous mission in the heart of Germania to consolidate the Roman Empire.

But they didn’t count on the betrayal of one of their own…

 

And now the survivors must retrieve their eagle, all amidst the fall of the…

Legions of the Damned.

Three men in a stolen truck, with hundreds of miles of desert to cross and thousands of enemy troops on the lookout for them.

 

Two of them know little about the desert or the Germans – but the third one, the big stranger, seems to know too much…

Deep in Nazi-occupied France, three bodies are found in the snow. The German patrolmen don’t know how they got there, but getting the corpses back to the chateau seems like a great excuse for some hot cocoa… and if the bodies choose to roam about in the night? Well who wants to be a stiff ‘stiff’?

Dawn… the time for shooting deserters and traitors… the time when justice is dealt out with a bullet.

 

Nobody knows how many men have died in this way throughout all the world’s wars, but now another soldier was about to face this penalty at the hands of an executioner who had covered thousands of miles to carry out his own form of justice… to pay back a wrong done many years before.
