Five wounded men walk out of an Army hospital and set off to reach their own units under their own steam. Happens all the time? Not likely, mate - especially when these men were deep inside enemy territory - even on the wrong side of the Mediterranean!
So how could they hope to succeed?
On The Run! features a rag-tag bunch of soldiers - mainly injured medical patients - thrown together in a desperate attempt to escape German clutches during the British evacuation of Greece in early 1941.
There's a good mix of characters and plenty of scope for drama as tempers fray they start to clash with each other. Add the threat of a potential traitor in their midst and we have another winning story from veteran Commando author R.A. Montague, ably drawn by Collado.
