Commando 5155-5158

Brand new Commando issues are out today! Face the heat of a Type 100 flamethrower in the Burmese jungle, dodge deadly foes in the English Channel, stampede away from the Sicherheitsdienst, and claim the claymore! It’s all in a week’s work for our Commandos!

5155: The Pact
Havildar Dilawar Khan, a sergeant in the Indian Army, pushed the Type 100 flamethrower away from his face, its flames licking at him and the Japanese soldier as they fought for control.
    But Dilawar had something more than survival to fight for, he had a duty to protect his unit and the pact he had made…

5156: Sea-Strike

Stan Turner of Air-sea rescue had a really dicey job, snatching ditched pilots from the hungry English Channel… sometimes under the very muzzles of the guns on the enemy coast. Then there was always the dangerous trip back to base, dodging shells and bullets as the launch leapt over the waves to bring its precious cargo safely home.
    But one dark night, Stan was ordered out on a very different task. His cargo, a bunch of tough Commandos. His mission, to attempt what no other Air-sea rescue launch had ever dared.

5157: Agents at War
SD Standartenfuhrer Rudi Reinstein smiled to himself, thinking he had just duped a dumb American into being a spy for the Nazi cause. But as he reached into his unusually light briefcase and found underwear in the place of his important Nazi documents, he realised it was him who had been duped!
    And so the race was on to catch agents, Ben Hawkins and Doris Blythe, before they escaped Poland!

5158: The Cutting Edge
THE PLACE – The Atlantic Ocean.
THE TIME – 1944-45. The Second World War.
THE RIVALS – Cousins. One a sailor and one an airman.
THE TARGETS – German U-Boats. As many as they could sink in their own ways.
THE PRIZE – A mighty claymore which had been in the family for generations.
Now follow the actions of these two men on the cutting edge of the war against U-boats!
