    Reprinting Commando War Stories in Pictures (1961 D. C. Thomson Digest) #52: The Tiger is Loose - Written by Eric Castle. Art by Sio. Cover by Ken Barr. They called him "The Tiger." He was a tattered, gaunt giant of a soldier, the lone survivor of a blazing wreck in the desert...and the shock had robbed him of his memory. He knew two things only, his name -- O'Leary -- and that he had a grim hatred of Germans. But if O'Leary was a man of mystery, he was also a man of many talents. He could shoot like a sniper, command an armoured car, lay field guns, and he could fight -- like a tiger! When advancing German troops over-ran the desert like jackals, preying on helpless cut-off British patrols, herding the brave, beaten men into prison cages, someone should have warned the Germans...someone should have told them...that "The Tiger" was loose! Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

In 1928, former Royal Flying Corps pilot Teddy Morgan was making a comfortable living as part of a daredevil wing-walking act in a flying circus. Then a former comrade-in-arms turned up with a job offer that Teddy simply couldn't refuse -- the chance to take to the skies in combat once more. Teddy's new employer was a ruthless Central American dictator. Not only that, he had to work alongside his old enemies, the Germans. Before long, Teddy was wondering if he was fighting on the right side. Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

    Eagles in Battle - Written by Ferg Handley. Art and Cover by John Ridgway. It's true that after 1066, no foreign power has successfully invaded Britain. Before that, though, things were different, as waves of foreign invaders rolled in over the seas. The Romans were amongst the first to arrive, their legions and their War Eagles sweeping all before them. Well, almost all, for in a small corner of the south west of England, resistance was brewing...and that meant battle could not be far away. Weekly British War comics digest.

    Reprinting Commando War Stories in Pictures (1961 D. C. Thomson Digest) #91: Dice with Death - Written by Roger Clegg. Art by Gordon Livingstone. Cover by Ken Barr. They called him "The Misfit" -- and with good reason. For young Tony Stacey was such a blundering fool he had been kicked out of every branch of the British Forces. Why then did the Germans move heaven and earth to kidnap Stacey -- why did the Germans whip him away to Tripoli as a vitally important prisoner? What was so special about this dopey, meek-and-mild ex-RAF tail-gunner that they kept half the desert Luftwaffe on the ground until he arrived? Here is the astounding story of one of the most fantastic bluffs of the war. Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

    The Hostile Jungle - Written by Mac MacDonald. Art by Jaume Forns. Cover by Ian Kennedy. Sergeant Mick Flanagan of the Royal Australian Air Force had his hands full.

Led by Lieutenant Ted Riley, his Raiders were an elite group of Australian soldiers who had been specially picked for the task of beating the Japanese at their own game -- fast-moving jungle warfare.

    Convict Commandos: Bad Vibrations - Written by Alan Hebden. Art and Cover by Manuel Benet. Running from a hail of lead fired by vengeful Germans as tons of concrete from a collapsing U-Boat crashed down around them -- just a normal day at the office for the Convict Commandos, surely? This time, though, Guy Tenby, Smiler Dawson, Titch Mooney and new boy Spider Mackay were really worried. They had lost one man on a previous mission, and this one had been giving off bad vibrations from the start. Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

    Reprinting Commando War Stories in Pictures (1961 D. C. Thomson Digest) #66: Terror Patrol - Written by Roger Clegg. Art by Ferran Sostres. Cover by Ken Barr. The narrow Channel between England and the Continent has always been vital to our safety. That was where Drake took on his enemies, the Spanish Armada -- and in the last war, it was where the little ships of the torpedo flotillas took on their German foes, sweeping them back from our shores. This story is about these patrol boats and the heroes who sailed them. And especially it is about Bill Ashby, flotilla commander, who conquered not only the fast E-boats, but even Germany's mightiest battleship! Weekly British War comics digest.

    'Sink the Odessa!' - Written by Alan Hebden. Art by Morahin. Cover by Janek Matysiak. Royal Navy Lieutenant Mike Fraser and Chief Petty Officer Derek Chalmers were frogmen -- well used to going on daring solo operations in the murky ocean depths aboard their underwater chariot.

He was a brilliant fighter pilot, ruthless and cunning -- he knew no fear. For his breath-taking skill and sheer nerve, he was known to friend and foe alike as "The Flying Shark." But there was another reason for that name. Tattooed on the pilot's right shoulder was the emblem of a shark's head. He didn't know how it had got there -- in fact, he didn't even know who he really was! Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

Before that, though, things were different, as waves of foreign invaders rolled in over the seas. The Romans were amongst the first to arrive, but when their Legions began to withdraw, other warlike clans were quick to fill the power vacuum they left. Clans like the Saxon warriors who surged westwards in search of fresh conquests. It seemed the Eagles who did battle with the Romans would have to unsheathe their weapons afresh.

Gruttenstein castle -- a name that sent shivers down men's spines. Every field and valley around it was sown with mines and booby-traps. Guarding the castle were the most cold-blooded killer-troops that Germany could produce. Hidden inside it was the terrible "vengeance weapon" soon to be unleashed on its helpless victims...and up there in the secret control room, waiting, gloating, was the fiend who called himself "The Wolf of Gruttenstein."

    Battle of the Beams - Written by Alan Hebden. Art and Cover by Manuel Benet. During World War II, the battle for supremacy between the scientists of Britain and Germany was as furious as any at sea, on the ground or in the air. When German advances in aircraft guidance gave their bombing raids brutal accuracy, young RAF Pilot Officer Clem Peterson and government scientist "Doc" Smith were just two of the men facing the task of neutralising the new system before enemy warplanes could bomb Britain to its knees. With their hands full, the last thing they needed was an inflexible Air Marshal unwilling to accept the need for progress...but that's what they got. Weekly British War comics digest.

"Slim" Sothern, fighter pilot, floated in the Channel in his Mae West and cursed his rotten luck. Sure, an ambulance rescue seaplane was circling above, but it was German, and Slim feared that for him the war was over, and only the deadly dullness of prison camp lay ahead. How wrong can you be? He was taken prisoner all right but inside a week, such strange and mysterious things had happened to Slim Sothern that he, and other RAF pilots like him, had been turned into a "squadron of the lost," and were flying Messerschmitts for the Germans against the British.

Enemy troops lay around the port on three sides. No supplies could get through by any land route. Everything had to be brought in by sea. It was a dangerous business for the landing craft that were used as supply vessels. Slow and cumbersome, they were under constant attack by German ships and aircraft. But Lieutenant Jack Jarrat and his crew took on all comers, even the German army. It seemed that nothing could stop them! Weekly British War comics digest.

On the morning of 28 June 1914, two pistol shots fired in a Sarajevo street would plunge the world into the most destructive war it had ever known as a spider's web of alliances set Great Power against Great Power. At the time, the event in Bosnia meant little to Sid Blake, a reluctant cavalryman -- but willing soldier -- in the Army of King George the Fifth. It meant more to him when he and his horse were shipped to France to play their part in the opening salvos of The Great War. Weekly British War comics digest.

Nearer dead than alive, a dozen men of the Long Range Desert Group struggled on across the burning sands of the Western Desert. A Nazi plane had shot their trucks from under them. And then they heard the terrifying whine of the diving aircraft again, and the hammering of its machine guns made them seek desperately for cover. But there was none. Young Lieutenant Pete Strong saw every one of his men -- all his closest buddies -- mowed down before his eyes. At that moment, Pete made a vow that for every drop of British blood that was spilled, the Nazis would pay tenfold. This is Pete's story. Weekly British War comics digest.

His mouth is dry with fear, a cold sweat breaks out on his brow. Flight Lieutenant Ted Ridge knew all the signs. But only he knew he wasn't fit to fly his Mosquito bomber on any more raids. And then the RAF picked him for a specially dangerous flying job -- a job that no one else could tackle. Ted Ridge just couldn't convince them that he wasn't still the best Mossie pilot they had.
