Sinister shapes like prowling sharks - and just as dangerous - swim silently towards a German battleship. Total destruction is their aim.
And all the time hostile German eyes are marking the frogmen's every move…
The artist responsible for the inside work in this book, Cecil Rigby, was one of the original Commando cadre of illustrators. He started with No 3 and finished with No 3272 - 146 books in just shy of 39 years which is far from shabby. What isn't clear from his Commando work is that he was a wickedly accurate caricaturist; his "portraits" of footballers graced many a newspaper. His art always had an old-fashioned style to it but this lends a period air to the stories and works very well here.
The story is unusual with so much underwater action but it's classic Commando and well merits its second airing. Dive straight into it!
