Not one of the men waiting in the darkness of that tunnel was unafraid. Each felt the fluttering in the stomach, the trembling of the hands that meant stark fear had taken over.
Were these a pack of cowards, then?
No. Every man present was a hero, brave and full of fight. Picked men - British Commandos and the cream of the French Resistance, the Maquis.
But they were waiting for a train with a deadly cargo, and each man knew that in a few seconds he might have an appointment with death!
It's hard to believe that this classic Commando book hails from nearly half a century ago. Somehow it almost seems timeless - practically like a blueprint for everything that these 'War Stories In Pictures' were, and still are, all about.
It's beautifully illustrated, with a fantastically pulpy cover, and features great characters, thrills and action that never lets up. 'Terror Train' keeps on track, never going off the rails, right until the final word.
Reader Announcement - Attention Please: Commando would like to apologise for the late arrival of the train puns in the previous sentence.
