There was only one thing that Sergeant Jack Brett and his Matilda tank crew hated as much as the Germans, and that was a certain tank transporter crew from the Royal Army Service Corps. When they weren't fighting the one, they were fighting the other. And so, when all three met on the Egyptian desert, it meant trouble.
But the handful of British soldiers had a big, big problem - they had to stop the advance of a huge German column…with their single damaged Matilda and that one tank transporter!
This story encapsulates many of Commando's core values. Foremost, there are a set of memorable characters most of whom clash, creating conflict and drama.
In addition, we have a rollicking desert war adventure, featuring an impressive array of military hardware - from trusty Matilda tanks to lumbering, American-made Diamond T transporters, heavy duty RASC lorries and trucks, not to mention zippy German armoured cars.
So…let's get ready to rumble!
