Lieutenant Pete Wade was very glad to see the last of Greece. He had seen too many brave men die facing hopeless odds as the Nazis swarmed in with overwhelming numbers.

But he wouldn't have been nearly so pleased if he'd known that he'd be sent back to Greece…by parachute, at dead of night. And there would be other enemies to deal with, more dangerous even than the Nazis!

Introduction

When Commando fan Phil Singleton nominated this book for a fresh viewing, I don't think he realised that he'd done me a huge favour. As a nipper, I remembered reading this particular story but had singularly failed to track it down despite many visits to the archive. I was on the third or fourth page when I realised I'd found it at last. Cheers, Phil.

We try (yes we do!) to avoid too much stereotyping of our characters these days but back in '71 there were obviously no such reservations - check out Spiro if you don't believe me! That said, this is a cracking tale of intrigue, filled with contrasting, clashing players. As usual, the art totally does justice to the script.

Now, if you'll excuse me, the 11-year-old me is about to read the story again.
