    In 1943 there wasn't a single matelot in the Royal Navy who hadn't heard of HM Submarine Dauntless. She'd sent more Japanese ships on the downward trip to Davy Jones' locker than any other vessel in the Pacific.

    Skipper of the Dauntless was the legendary "Mauler" Mathieson - tough as the plates of steel that welded his sub together, and surly as a wounded bear.

    So when young Harry Barton was posted to the Dauntless, he reckoned he was just about the luckiest lieutenant in the Navy. But that was before he found out there could only be one officer aboard the Dauntless..."Mauler" Mathieson himself!

    Introduction

    The front cover of this issue hints at tension and drama underwater but if you're expecting a suspenseful 63 pages, you'll be disappointed. This is an action-packed tale that cracks along like a line of Spanish fire-crackers. Perhaps it has something to do with the two Spanish artists whose work you can appreciate her. Chaco did a number of covers - though this is the only one with muted underwater colours - while the black-and-whites are supplied by one of the clan of superb Commando illustrators, the de la Fuentes.

    And don't forget the story, it's a real fire-eater.
