"Old Soldiers never die," was just another saying to Corporal Bill Curtis and Private Jack Hunt until that night they landed on an island to sabotage the huge guns threatening the Allied invasion forces.
Then strange things began to happen. It all started when they met up with an officer of Napoleon's Army - a man who by rights should have been dead for over a hundred years, but still helped them fight the Nazis.
Waterloo is very much in the minds of military historians (and war comic fans) right now. In this batch of four Commandos, we've included a tale set very much around the battle which I hope you'll enjoy. Checking out 50-year-old stories for the Gold Collection, I didn't expect to come across anything remotely connected with the battle 200 years ago. Then this tale popped up.
It was a surprise as Ken Barr's outrageous cover gives no clues to the Napoleonic connection. Skentleberry's script, though, weaves the echo in very nicely, thanks.
So get reading and finally face our Waterloo.
