Commando War Stories in Pictures; Corporal Tom Gerrard of the Royal Tank Corps was just an ordinary bloke, easy going and cheerful.; Colonel Karl Oberth of the SS Panzer Corps was a typical Nazi officer, brutal and merciless.; Somewhere on the limitless, scorching inferno of the Western Desert, Fate decided that their tank tracks should cross.; Here then is the story of the epic fight put up by Corporal Gerrard and his tank, Matilda, against the might and power of the Panzers and their swaggering Colonel, who thought he could sweep the British off the face of the desert…; This story has been re-printed as number 2523Eric CastleAmador Garcia

The Powerful Japanese army was island-hopping its ruthless way down through the South Seas towards Australia. Many a brave Aussie soldier, standing his ground in the green hell of the island jungles, was bull-dozed into eternity by the sheer weight of the Nipponese army.; And one Englishman in the Australian army was caught up in the desperate battle.; Bob Palmer he was christened, but COWARD was the name they branded him with. Coward, the word that turns a man into loneliest being on earth, for what soldier seeks a coward for company?; But there was no craven blood in Bob Palmer’s veins - and he proved he was ready to spill every drop as he blasted Jap after Jap into kingdom come…

North Africa, 1942.; In the Western Desert, that vast cauldron of scorching heat and flaming lead, were forged the toughest fighting men ever known - the men they called the Desert Rats.; And yet even they yielded pride of place to their truck drivers, those dare-devil fighting fools who, to keep vital supply lines open, blazed a trail of blood and glory across the Western Desert…Eric HebdenC.T. Rigby

With faces blackened for the night drop into occupied Europe, ten hand-picked paratroopers jokingly christened themselves the ten little nigger boys. And how Fate must have smiled, for it turned out to be a grim and deadly jest.; One by one at the hands of the Nazis they suffered the fate of the famous little nigger boys; One by one they died the death of heroes.; Here for the first time their tremendous story is told… Gordon Livingstone

Street by street through a small coastal town in occupied France, No.5 Commando group were fighting desperately towards their target.; Down a lane they were suddenly faced with a blank wall. They turned back, only to find Nazi storm-troopers had sealed the entrance with murderous machine-gun fire.; But on this mission there could be no giving up. These battle-hardened, fierce young men just had to fight their way onward, for to them had been entrusted the well-nigh impossible task of seeking out Germany’s latest and most ghastly secret weapon.

Without warning the periscope of a U-boat broke the surface. It turned and focussed on the Locksea Lighthouse. Then, slowly, the glistening black hull of the submarine came up from the depths.; No one could deny the courage and cool cheek of the Nazi Commander who had made up his mind to capture the vital link in the guiding of our Atlantic convoys.; Then, into what was to be one of the most fantastic episodes of the war, sailed Skipper Jimmy Cleeves and his RAF rescue launch K20…

Many and fearsome are the perils that can beset a man on a swift-flowing river after dark.; Japanese river patrols knew all these dangers, but armed to the teeth they feared none of them.; Then, one dark night, there glided into that gleaming river a new menace that was to strike terror into every Jap soldier…a swimming Irishman with hatred in his heart and a Commando knife between his teeth.Eric CastleRafael Auraleon

In the steaming jungles of Burma, man has a thousand enemies… the wild animals, the snakes and poisonous insects, the deadly fevers. But the fighting British jungle patrols had an enemy more deadly than any of these… the creeping little yellow men who could appear from nowhere and sow the lead seeds of death before melting again into the waiting green background.; But Sergeant Tom Flynn had his own way of silencing the Banzai cries of those Sons of Nippon.; With a handful of men and a heart full of courage he fought his way through them - and with him he brought a strange prize… ten million pounds in solid gold… C.T. Rigby

They were keeping him away from the front line - a man like Sergeant Kelly! And yet this big Australian had such a deadly hatred for the enemy it made him into a fighting fury, a battling, raging, soldier supreme.; But John Kelly was a trier, and exciting was the path he trod to defy authority and get his hands on the enemy’s throat. Gordon Livingstone
