After crash-landing on a supposedly deserted island, they are dismayed to find that it is in fact home to a village full of civilians. Though the three Japanese airmen do not wish to take innocent lives, their fellow countrymen, responding to their mayday signal, are not so honourable.

The dull throb of the Dakota's engines pounded remorselessly in the paratroopers' ears as they filed in to their jumping order.

    Invasion Watch - Written by Mac MacDonald. Art and Cover by Carlos Pino. In the early days of the Second World War, men too young, too old or too infirm for the regular services flocked to join Britain's Home Guard to "do their bit." Because of this, the units were dismissed as a bit of a joke in some quarters. If those naysayers had listened to the conversation in one Home Guard headquarters on a night in 1940, though, they might have changed their minds. For as the men there shared their stories, it became very clear that they had fought, and would fight again. And fight like the demons they were. Weekly British War comics digest.

    Hero in a Heli - Written by Steve Taylor. Art and Cover by Keith Page.

He never dreamt that he'd have to trust his life to that bus driver in the hostile skies over the Falklands Islands. Weekly British War comics digest.
