Look how young Sergeant-pilot Jack Sherwood left a Nazi prison camp - on the end of a home-made, twelve-foot vaulting pole!

And this is only one of a hair-raising series of close shaves Jack survives in this great yarn. Sprinter, weight-lifter, jumper and vaulter, this crack user athlete has to pull out he knows before he gets clear of the Germans to fly - and fight - again.

Introduction

POW stories have always been a bit problematic in Commando. We've always tried to have lots of action in our stories so the static setting of a Stalag doesn't really work. The other thing that's difficult is having a lone character featuring throughout the tale. Endless pictures of a thoughtful hero can get a bit wearing. And yet, Mr Tyson has used both these themes and made a Commando tale that works very well.

With Medrano's inside art and Ken Barr's slightly misleading cover, this is a rare classic seeing the light of day for the first time in 40 years.
