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.

Tom Cowie’s letters home made his fifteen year old brother, John, idolise him.

It was his dream to fight at his brother’s side and John was determined to join the fight before it was over!

 

He was tall for his age, but the recruitment office was only the first hurdle as the harsh realities of the trenches are revealed when..

A Boy Goes to War

To Pilot Officer Andy Seymour, His new job was a disaster. Busted from flying Hurricanes, he was now second pilot in a massive Boeing Fortress reconnaissance bomber. In his view, it was like driving a furniture van after having a sports car.

 

And as for action, well covering a thousand miles of empty sky every day wasn’t his idea of winning the war. Whish showed just how wrong Andy’s ideas were, for the sky held plenty of dangers, not the least of them the Nazi recce planes doing the same job as Andy…

There was nothing Lieutenant Arthur Gormley wanted more than to do his bit in the war. He had tried to join the cavalry but due to unforeseen circumstances had ended up in the Army Cyclist Corps.

 

But that didn’t dampen his spirits! Every time he fell off that bicycle, he would get back on again… and again… and again. “No matter, chaps” Gormless Gormley would cry, “On your bikes again!”

Sergeant Joe Cougan was a tough Para who had seen a lot of action and who didn’t suffer fools gladly. Which was unfortunate for private Andy Bruce, a clumsy youngster whom Cougan considered the world’s biggest fool.

 

Sergeant Sam Gleeson tried in vain to get his arch-rival Cougan to give Andy a break. But there came a day when Cougan’s life was in Andy Bruce’s clumsy hands.

An Elite unit from Mi7, they went where the army couldn’t taking on the worst of the worst. They had rules, though: don’t shoot first and if you fall you’re on your own – but then what can you expect from something that doesn’t officially exist?

 

Named after the SRF, made famous by Ramsey’s Raiders. Like it or not, Jimmy Ramsey’s grandson was now in charge of the Strategic Reaction Formation team, and together they were known as… A FORCE

Germ Warfare – unheard of and undreamt of by most people in 1944. But throughout that year the Nazis were being pushed back on all fronts and getting desperate. In a sinister, gloomy castle in a German forest, scientists had developed what they called the Red Death virus, the most horrible and lethal germ known to man – and they were determined to use it as a weapon of war.

 

Who was going to stop them?

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.

 

What should have been a routine raid took a horrific turn for Commandos Leo Mantelow and Lionel Stone as they faced down something from out of a nightmare. But it’s hard to follow the book when you’re up against the living dead!

A gang of renegades led by a ruthless SS Death’s Head officer, Karl Schwarz, was terrorising an area of Bavaria as the war drew to a close.

 

The task of tracking them down fell to Wehrmacht Oberleutnant Werner Lang and he had many reasons to succeed. The main one being that if he didn’t… he and his men would hang!

As world leaders hold talks at an elite country estate, a special ops team is drafted in when uninvited guests arrive, International relations don’t always go smoothly – and Scott Falcon is about to find that there’s nothing worse than an eco-terrorist interrupting your barbecue.

It should have been a routine job – to go into the desert and repair a broken-down tank, but it turned into a nightmare journey for Corporal Rod Pengarth.

 

For there was a curse on this man… in ten days he was going to die!

Courage in the face of disaster – a famous trait of the RAF throughout World War Two. But not in the case of Johnny Bagshott. After condemning his team to a POW camp, can the young flighty young navigator work with the devious Hauptmann Hasse to regain standing with his friends… or will he betray them all and help destroy a top British base the country would never recover from?!

Werner Kohl had seen plenty of action all right… but not on the battlefield. All his fighting had been done on film, playing the part of a superhero to make every citizen in Hitler’s Germany believe that the Nazi war machine was unbeatable. He had critics though – many of the soldiers who had to face real death and fear on every front where the guns thundered. Every last one of them wondered how Werner would cope with the real thing.

 

Very soon they would have their answer!

The RAF’s finest bomber pilot finds himself with a new crew and new challenges as the Nazis press forward and losses begin to mount.

 

Can Braddock overcome his demons and ensure the survival of his Blenheim crew? Or will Suddaby finally push him over the edge…

It was a top-secret enemy base in the Italian mountains. A specially selected group had to get in, smash it, then get out again. The way it had never been done before, and has never been done since…

 

But they did it.

This is a building in Stalingrad they called the Red House. Inside it were five soviet soldiers, ready to take on the might of the Nazi eagle, be it that with a DShK heavy machine gun or a Molotov cocktail.

 

To the death they would defend it, until the Red House was known by all as the… House of Death.

From the day he had first joined the Royal Marines, Rob Smith had trained for this moment. Here he was, bullets cracking past his head, firing back at Russian soldiers of the Soviet Army.

 

But standing shoulder to shoulder with him were other Russians blasting away with as much determination as their own countrymen. It was a crazy deadly duel being played out in the wintry wastes of Siberia.
