    A Tigers Tale - Written by George Low. Art by Vicente Alcazar. Cover by Ian Kennedy. "Tiger!" -- a cry that struck fear into many a soldier's heart during World War II. Little wonder when it meant that you were about to encounter 50-odd tons of armoured might, impervious to all but the heaviest weapons and with an 88mm gun whose shells could punch right through another tank from a mile away. Tanks, though, don't operate themselves -- they need crewmen. Crewmen like the five here who will tell you...a Tigers tale! Weekly British War comics digest. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 6 1/2-in., 68 pages, B&W.

High on a rocky crag on the west coast of Scotland stood Whitecrest House, home of the Mackay family of Strathfiddich. Over the centuries, its grim, stone walls had looked down on many tales of bravery, mystery and intrigue. Now, in World War II, it was being put to a peaceful purpose -- a boarding school for boys. But what the boys didn't know was that under their feet, in hidden cellars and dungeons, was another kind of school, where the students had names like Kurt...and Hans...and Ernst.
