Synopsis

By the time it was launched in 1961, Battle Picture Library already had two stablemates at Fleetway Publications - War Picture Library and Air Ace Picture Library. To avoid any conflicts with its sister magazines, Battle concentrated solely on stories based on land, although the authors and artists had plenty of scope when deciding on settings for their tales of action and adventure.Stories such as "Fort Blood" or "The Fire-Eater" pit our fighting men against their bitter enemies in the heat and dust of the desert while "The Flame and the Fury" or "The Island of Guilt" see them slogging their way through the intense tropical humidity of the darkest jungles. The Let 'Em Have It collection features some of the finest stories ever to appear in the Battle Picture Library series, providing hours of entertainment for fans of fighting yarns whether they be revisiting the classic comic book series they remember from their youth, or whether they are going into Battle for the first time!
