    I used to get Warlord delivered by the local shop, turned out I always got to read them 3rd hand, first by the newsagent then my dad and finally I got a look in. (Look In now theres another blast from the past) I always felt Karl Schaft of the Abwehr diserved his own stories instead of only turning up to lose against Lord Peter Flint. Another favourite was Kampfgruppe Falken which was I guess a childrens version of the Sven Hassel books.

    Guys, Great thread

    As a young lad always had Battle comic and commando magazine delivered weekly and monthly if i remember correctly.


    Best stories in Battle were Charlie’s War and my absolute favourite HMS Nightshade. This showed the adventures and eventual sinking of a small corvette and its crew.
    In fact as i got older i got bored with the other 'Battle' contents, but had to keep ordering untill the conclusion of the Nightshade epic.

    From memory both Charlie’s war and Nightshade reasonably realistic and not in the great hero war mongering, gung ho style.
    After reading these stories you certainly got the impression that war was a serous business not to be condoned.

    The reading of these comics must have had a long term affect…….
    Although I avoided the army, as I sit here now, I have two WW2 tanks sitting in my garage and garden!

    Have a look at my web site for Commando adventures of my favourite armoured fighting vehicles…..The Daimler Dingo & Armoured Car

    If anyone has a copy of Commando - Sergeants don’t cry, or any other comics featuring the above vehicles, please get in touch

    Hansi the Girl Who Loved the Swastika reviewed by Bradley Mason Hamlin

    Hansi, The Girl Who Loved The Swastika is the real-life autobiography of Maria Anne Hirschmann. She lived in the Sudetenland in 1938 when the Germans took it over from Czechoslovakia. That year Maria won a "contest" to join the Bund Deutscher Mädel (BDM). She joined the organization and became a volunteer nurse at military medical clinics across the western front of Germany. At the conclusion of the war, she was captured by vigilant Russian soldiers, who constantly threatened her with rape. Finally she escaped and rejoined her long lost sweetheart in Switzerland. Eventually they emigrated to America, where she runs ex-Nazi Christian support groups in prisons and half-way homes across California. Hansi the Girl Who Loved the Swastika was published by Spire Christian Comics in 1976

    This came out on my birthday, never realised that before.

    Used to get my local shop to put it aside for me.

    The first issue (8th March 1975) covered as many varied aspects of the war as possible. The Army was repesented by D-Day Dawson. The Air Force by Lofty's One Man Luftwaffe, The Navy by the ancient Flight Of The Golden Hinde. Secret Agent was Mike Nelson, who also occupied the two centre coloured pages. Special commandos were Rat Pack. Wannabe commando was one of my personal favourites, The Bootneck Boy, and finally we had the Japanese interest in the great story, Terror Behind The Bamboo Curtain.

    Jonathan Ball It's a way of life.

    This thread brings back some good memories. I used to get Battle when I was a kid. I recall it merged with another comic to become Battle Action. I can't remember many of the stories but I do remember Johnny Red, a British Hurricane pilot flying in Russia wth his trusty wingman Yakob(?)

    Would anyone else know of any of the other stories that around at this time? It would be the early 80's.

    Cheers
