    Unusually for Battle Picture Weekly, Mike Nelson has separate, distinct adventures, each with their own title.

    1. Day of the Eagle (Battle Picture Weekly #1 - Battle 1 - Battle Picture Weekly #12 - Battle 12 ) has Mike Nelson tasked with assassinating Hitler and seemingly being killed by radiation after witnessing a Nazi nuclear weapon test.
    2. The Death's Head Dossier (Battle Picture Weekly #14 - Battle 14 - Battle Picture Weekly #23 - Battle 23) has Nelson investigating a spy ring in Britain, discovering traitors within his own organisation.
    3. Return of the Eagle (Battle Picture Weekly #25 - Battle 25 - Battle Picture Weekly #50 - Battle 50) has Nelson acting as an assassin across Nazi-occupied Europe and concludes with the apparent death of his arch-enemy Kleiber.
    4. Night of the Eagle (Battle Picture Weekly #51 - Battle 51 - Battle Picture Weekly #53 - Battle 53) has Nelson cross Europe by train with critical battle plans, pursued by the Gestapo.
    5. The Eagle Flies East (Battle Picture Weekly #55 - Battle 55 - Battle Picture Weekly #75 - Battle 75) has Nelson disguising himself as a German scientist and thereby infiltrating a Japanese installation. He then goes on to work with US Intelligence services across the Pacific.
    6. The Eagle Must Die (Battle Picture Weekly #76 - Battle 76 - Battle Picture Weekly #85 - Battle 85 ) sees Nelson discover a Nazi doppelganger for Churchill but being treated as a traitor himself.
    7. Operation Black Death ( Battle Picture Weekly #100 - Battle 100 - Battle Picture Weekly #112 - Battle 112 ) in which Nelson foils the Gestapo and a renegade scientist, attempting to create an airborne plague. Much of the story is set in a devastated Berlin.
    8. Rogue Eagle ( Battle Picture Weekly #114 - Battle 114 - Battle Picture Weekly #120 - Battle 120 ) has Nelson chasing down escaped Nazis, with the header panel showing how many he has "eliminated" each week. The war is over. Is he really dead this time?
