For the generations of men whose interest in military history was triggered by reading war comics in their youth, here at last is Commando's ultimate collection of Second World War stories. This book showcases the best of the best - and 25 per cent bigger than the originals for high-explosive impact!
Chosen by former editor George Low, who worked on Commando comic books for over 40 years, the brilliantly drawn stories in this classic collection range from backs-to-the-wall heroics at Dunkirk and Battle of Britain dogfights, through desert warfare in North Africa and daring commando raids behind enemy lines, to tough battles across Europe from D-Day to Arnhem.
Evocatively titled stories such as 'Battle Wagon', 'The Ship Busters', 'Death Patrol', 'Aces Wild' and 'Riley's Rifle' show swashbuckling Tommies in their finest hours, giving a good honest drubbing to fanatical Fritzes and the horrid Hun.
For everyone whose comic-book battle lust has ever been stirred by Nazi cries of 'Die! Englischer schweinhund', Call of Battle will transport them right back into fictional combat situations they'd forgotten were so much fun. And a new generation can discover Commando's legendary way of taking ordinary men and turning them into heroes.
