    Reprinting Commando War Stories in Pictures (1961 D. C. Thomson Digest) #1102: Flak Fever - Written by R.A. Montague. Art by Gordon Livingstone. Cover by Ian Kennedy. Flieger Abwehr Kanone -- a German mouthful that was shortened to "flak," a word dreaded by every Allied pilot. It meant anti-aircraft guns, those multi-barrelled cannon and deadly 88-millimetre guns that could blast attackers out of the sky. Every important target in Nazi Europe bristled with them. Mosquito pilot Terry Franklin had met his fair share of flak and it terrified him. Yet here he was in a new squadron whose job it was to attack only the most difficult targets!

    The Eagles Strike! - Written by Ferg Handley. Art and Cover by Keith Page. The mid-17th century would turn out to be the most turbulent time in England's already tempestuous history.

Things looked bleak as Englishmen battled fellow Englishman. Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.
