    To Vimy...To Victory? - Written by George Low. Art by Keith Page. Cover by Ian Kennedy. On the morning of 28 June 1914, two pistol shots fired in a Sarajevo street had plunged the world into war and pitched men of all nations against one another. Three years later, more and more soldiers were being dragged into the churning stalemate of the Western Front. Men from half a world away from France came to fight over her muddy battlefields. This is the story of one of them, Canadian Rick Strang. 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) #110: Dog Fight! - Written by I.B. Kellie. Art by Ferran Sostres. Cover by Ken Barr. "Tally-Ho! Bandits!" That was the battle-cry of the British fighter pilot -- the words the hunters in Spitfires shouted over their radio telephones when they had spotted German raiders. That famous battle-cry meant that a dogfight was only a couple of heart beats away -- and there was glory and medals to be won...and death to be faced. Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

    Samurai Ace - Written by George Low. Art and Cover by Carlos Pino. "Tally-Ho! Bandits!" These might not have been the exact words on the lips of Lieutenant Azuma Takata's lips when he threw his Nakajima Ki-43 fighter into a dogfight, but the spirit of the warrior within him was exactly the same as that which drove the RAF men whose battle-cry it was. What he never imagined is that he would have to turn that fighting spirit against his own side to prove he was indeed a...samurai ace! Weekly British War comics digest.

    Fishermans Foes - Written by George Low. Art by Jaume Forns. Cover by Janek Matysiak. Fishing, particularly deep-sea fishing, is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world -- for the sea is a harsh, cruel and unforgiving place to work. So the idea of strapping guns to a trawler and sending it to war might be expected to start a mutiny amongst any crew. Not the bunch aboard the Amity, though. They were not only prepared for war, they went looking for it! And that's when they found themselves facing a legion of...fisherman's foes! Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

Benny, six Yanks and a couple of ghosts. Yes, the ghosts wore uniforms too -- and didn't they get mucked into the Germans! Weekly British War comics digest.

    Balkan Battleground - Written by Ferg Handley. Art by Luis Olivera. Cover by Ian Kennedy. Sergeant Pete Jenkins, a veteran Commando, was posted to Yugoslavia in the autumn of 1944. His mission was to assist and train a Partisan resistance group in their fight against the brutal occupying Nazis and their followers -- a militia known as "The Black Wolves." But there was a snag -- the enemy seemed to know the Partisans' every move. There had to be a traitor in their midst. Everyone was under suspicion -- Pete included. Weekly British War comics digest.

    Reprinting Commando War Stories in Pictures (1961 D. C. Thomson Digest) #940: The Little Ships - Written by O'Connell. Art by Gordon Livingstone. Cover by Jeff Bevan. Think of Britain's fighting navy in the Second World War and you picture towering battleships, mammoth aircraft carriers, powerful cruisers, sleek destroyers. But alongside them are hosts of smaller craft, without whose efforts the mighty fleets could not operate. They are "the little ships" -- trawlers, drifters, coastal craft of all kinds. They served on the seas of the world, and this is the story of just two of them...of the ice-cold courage of their crews. Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

    The Miners of Messines - Written by George Low. Art by Keith Page. Cover by Ian Kennedy. On the morning of 28 June 1914, two pistol shots fired in a Sarajevo street had plunged the world into war and pitched men of all nations against one another. By 1917, men faced one another over a narrow strip of No-Man's-Land, unable to advance without incurring massive casualties. One group, though, could move across that gulf much more easily, for they were tunnellers who operated deep in the earth. Yet even they were far from safe. Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

He flew alone, and he piloted a plane the likes of which the RAF had never seen -- a jet-black Mosquito. The only thing in all Burma feared by the all-conquering Japanese, the Mosquito came upon them like a screaming black shadow and as mysteriously disappeared, leaving utter destruction in its wake. Meet the pilot, the man who built this terror plane, the one they called "Lone Wolfe." Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

    Danger on Board - Written by David Turner. Art by Rezzonico. Cover by Janek Matysiak. HMS Apollo was one of many Royal Navy destroyers which escorted vulnerable merchantmen as they steamed beyond the North Sea and across the dangerous waters off Northern Russia. Doubly dangerous, for the Germans seemed to know their every move, with an alarming number of ships being sunk by Kriegsmarine U-boats and destroyers. Midshipman Johnny Clark began to wonder if the enemy had some kind of help in obtaining their information. Surely none of the Apollo's men could be a traitor...could they?

    Reprinting Commando War Stories in Pictures (1961 D. C. Thomson Digest) #2295: The Hunt Begins... - Written by Cyril Walker. Art by Ibanez. Cover by Ian Kennedy. The valley entrance was dominated by the rock carving of a huge tiger, poised as if guarding the pass. To the Japanese soldiers, it was a chilling reminder of the talk of the natives...that a giant man-eating tiger stalked these parts. But to their ruthless officer, this was nonsense. He was enjoying his favourite sport of hunting down escaping POWs, and he wasn't going to let any superstitious rubbish get in his way! Weekly British War comics digest.

Driving along a country road in neutral Switzerland, the Convict Commandos seemed to be enjoying a well-earned rest after a score of near-fatal missions. But appearances can be deceptive and, as the ever-fearful Jelly Jakes pointed out, their boss, Major Guy Tenby, always had an unpleasant surprise up his sleeve. And so it proved. The Major's latest escapade would plunge them into mortal danger once more. Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

    Desert Hunters - Written by Alan Hebden. Art and Cover by Janek Matysiak. The desert is a harsh place. It's hard to survive in even when conditions are at their mildest. Fighting a war there seems utter lunacy -- after all, there's nothing of any value there. But all war is madness and can bring madness to those involved. So British Army Lieutenant Ray Sherrington wasn't surprised to find the man he was up against was ruthless to the point of insanity. Captain Silvio Scappa was as mad as a cornered scorpion, and with a poisonous sting in his tail. Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

    Attack in Arabia - Written by George Low. Art by Keith Page. Cover by Ian Kennedy. On the morning of 28 June 1914, two pistol shots fired in a Sarajevo street had plunged the world into war and pitched men of all nations against one another. In the world's first truly global conflict, soldiers, sailors and airmen found themselves fighting in far-flung battlefields. In the arid wastes of the Middle East, British troops faced Turks, Germans and Austrians in battles just as wasteful of lives as those on the Western front.

    Mistaken Identity - Written by Ferg Handley. Art by Vila. Cover by Janek Matysiak. Second-Lieutenant Ashley Windsor was a good-natured type but a bit naive and impulsive. Serving with an infantry regiment in India, he was the butt of many a joke amongst his fellow officers -- especially when he hinted that he was a (very) distant relative to Queen Victoria. This silly remark set off an extraordinary chain of events, including a small war against a scheming local tribal leader -- who thought he would end up rich if he could capture a member of the British Royal Family!

But surely, you say, they're planes from two different wars, their designs nearly 25 years apart. Surely they would never have met in combat. Well, yes and no.

When Johnny Peace was called up to the army, he refused to fight, refused to kill anyone. And he was branded a coward. So he went to war as a medical orderly.
