You have heard the 'Achtungs', the 'Aiess' and the 'By Shintoes' ring out, but no collection of Commando war stories, the very best action and adventure, although born and bred in Britain, would be complete without plenty of issues resounding to words like 'cobber', 'drongo' or 'pom'.
Yes, the Aussies and Kiwis are here, and they're about to put in a two-fisted, explosive performance. You'd expect no less from these larger-than-life characters who are guaranteed to bring out the best in any action-packed Commando yarn.
Chosen by former editor George Low, the brilliantly drawn strips in this classic collection range from sub-hunting sorties in the Pacific, through jungle island combat against merciless soldiers from the Land of the Rising Sun, to commando raids in the North African desert, flak-peppered bombing runs on Germany and Ramboesque fighting in Vietnam.
Evocatively titled stories such as 'Outback Army', 'Killing Zone', 'Regan's Raiders' and 'Island of Fear' show fearless Anzacs in their finest hours, giving a good honest drubbing to all their fanatical foes.
For everyone whose comic-book battle lust has ever been stirred by Nazi cries of 'Auslander schweinhund!' or Japanese shrieks of 'Banzai!' Anzac Heroes will transport them right back into fictional combat situations they'd forgotten were so entertaining, and a whole new generation can discover how Commando turns ordinary men into heroes.
