He was only a skinny little guy, about five feet nothing at all…but, by jiminy, any Nazis who ran up against Private Sam Small were out of luck.
While his ammo lasted, Sam shot them; then with his empty gun he clubbed them; when it was in splinters, he started in with his bare hands!
Only one man knew what drove that little guy to such a fighting fury - only one found out the terrible secret of Sam Small - and here he tells Sam's amazing story.
Hiding behind Aldoma's magnificent all-action cover is one of the most idiosyncratic Commando stories you'll ever read. Told in the first person, and an American first person at that, it chronicles the acts of a man with a death wish over a very short period of time. These are traits not normally associated with Commando and, indeed, very difficult to get right. But right they are here, very right indeed.
Sit back, suspend your disbelief and enjoy this roller-coaster ride in the thick of the action in the company of ace reporter Jim Dawson.
By the way, we had noticed Jim's similarity to Robert Mitchum.
