This, the latest in what promises to be an ongoing series of reprints of the best of the Fleetway war pocket libraries, is in many ways the most successfully realized yet.

Editor Steve Holland has picked a particularly fine bunch of stories, with scripts by a team of writers and editors who in most cases had direct experience of the conflict they were writing about. The stories are just as gripping and engaging some forty plus years on as they were when the were first published and again as with the previous collection the heroes and protagonists are frequently men trying to come to terms with their own personal demons as much as they are fighting the enemy.

These are stories therefore with real resonance which coupled with some really superb and atmospheric artwork plunges the reader right into the seat of the action.

The stories themselves are by and large from the first three years of the comics run spanning 1961 - 1963 and again, there are no credits published, which is a pity, however I'll reprise a list of the contents with the appropriate name checks:

Fort Blood - Battle No.22 - Art:Jose Ortiz - Script:Unknown

Killer At Large - Battle No.7 - Art:Jose Bielsa - Script:Donne Avenell

The Fire Eaters - Battle No.96 - Art:Gino D'Antonio - Script:H.K. Bulmer

No Higher Stakes - Battle No.89 - Art:Jorge Macabich - Script:E.C. Tubb

Ten Seconds to Zero - Battle No.38 - Art:Jose Ortiz - Script:Unknown

The Flame and the Fury - Battle No.33 - Art:Aurelio Bevla - Script:Unknown

Death and Glory - Battle No.27 - Art: Gino D'Antonio - Script:Unknown

The Island of Guilt - Battle No.4 - Art:Renzo Calegari - Script:Donne Avenell

The Quick and the Dead - Battle No.

I have a number of these comic book collections, and this one easily matches up to any of the others. I started reading these as a boy 50 years ago, and reading them again now brings back memories of a very happy childhood. I know the storylines are often repeated, and the ending usually fairly predictable, but so what? They're still an exciting read for small boys of any age.

Very good although I have not finished reading this book yet. Book takes me back to the 1960's when I first read these magazines
