just wondering if any one else has an interest in these great illustrated war stories ?
I have 6 compendiums of 12 stories in each
with theme titles for the 12 stories within like
true brit
anzacs at war
bandits at 12 0 clock

I love them mate, I had hundreds when I was a kid, unfortunately I made the mistake of selling them. I think the lowest number I had was #10.
Fantastic stories and wonderful artwork.

Oh, heck yeah, I LOVE these old British war comics!  As an American I had never heard of them until 2008 when I got to spend several months in the UK and found a reprint volume in the local public library.  Just now I found some notes that I typed at that  time, to remind me of it later:


Steve Holland, Gen. Ed., Against All Odds: 12 of the Best War Picture Library Comic Books Ever! War Picture Library Collection No. 2.  London: Prion / Carlton Books, 2008.  Canterbury Public Library, read Nov. 2008.  B & W reprints of British war comics from the 1950s.  Other volumes in the series are titled Unleash Hell, Death or Glory, and Let ‘Em Have It.  Licensed by DC Comics.  My favorites in this one were “Strike Squadron” about a carrier HMS Insuperable with Stringbags and Seafires in the Indian Ocean c. 1942, “The Thin Blue Line” about a Hurricane squadron in Greece 1941, “Banzai” about an Englishman with an Australian patrol on New Guinea, and “Rogue Lancaster” about a German spy who hijacks a Lanc.
