For the generations of men whose interest in military history was triggered by reading war comics in their youth, here at last is Commando’s toughest-ever collection of Second World War stories. The 12 Toughest Commando Stories Ever showcases the best fighting action – and at a size 25% bigger then the originals for maximum impact!
Chosen by the current editor George Low, who has worked on Commando comic books for over 40 years, the brilliantly drawn stories in this brand-new classic collection range from daring bomber raids over Germany and close-combat fighting against hard-as-nails Japanese in Burma, through depth-charge blasted midget submarine warfare, to hard-hitting battles across North Africa, Italy and northern Europe.
Evocatively titled stories such as ‘The Fighting Few’, ‘Bright Blade of Courage’, ‘Flak Fever’ and ‘Fight or Die!’, show fearless Tommies in their finest hours, giving a good honest drubbing to fanatical foes from all the Axis countries.
For anyone whose comic-book battle lust has ever been stirred by Nazi cries of ‘Englander Schweinhund!’ or Japanese yells of ‘Banzai!’, The 12 Toughest Commando Stories Ever will transport them right back into fictional combat situations they’d forgotten were so entertaining. And a new generation can discover Commando’s legendary way of taking ordinary men and turning them into heroes.
Note: This book contains the same stories that are found in Commando’s True Brit.
