If you're an army glider pilot. You've got a dodgy job - landing yourself and your troops in the teeth of anything the enemy throws at you.
Hazardous at the best of times, it's grimly suicidal when thick flak is coming up, the exploding shells chucking your frail Horsa all over the sky.
If an unlucky burst cuts your tow-rope long before you reach your landing ground, there's only one way to go - down…and fast!
This story packs a real punch, with a fictional insight into the dangers of flying into battle as part of a glider squadron. No Way But Down is brimming with aerial action, vividly brought to life by veteran Commando interior artist Gordon Livingstone.
Gordon's good friend and fellow veteran artist, Ian Kennedy, provides a stunning, moody cover, featuring his trademark aeronautical illustration the likes of which has been so highly regarded by comics fans throughout a career that has spanned decades and continues to this day.
