Format: Hardcover
I had seen this before and thought it would be incredibly boring and full of text. How wrong I was! This huge book (about A3 paper size) features 6 classic commando stories with an extra long introduction, information pages about artists, writers and editors(typically 6 pages long and backed up with lots of commando artwork) and the top 50 cover artworks. My favorite story was cellar rats which I have read several times!
Overall, a brilliant book for commando enthusiats old and young!

I don't believe that there is any male in the UK who didn't read " Commando " in their youth. The comemorative book celebrating 50 years of the publication is a wonderful record of the genre, which explains all aspects of the creation of "Commando" from the story editors, artists and covers. A brilliant record of days gone by!
