4585 phantom sergeant

4585 phantom sergeant

Back Cover SummaryEdit

He moved like a shadow, a ghostly-quiet shape that flitted through the Burmese jungle wherever there was a Japanese soldier to be hunted, an invading enemy to be destroyed.

Many of those men did see the Phantom Sergeant, but if they did that was the last thing they ever saw…

Introduction by Calum Laird, Editor.Edit

It's a Commando tradition that we make our stories as authentic and accurate as we possibly can so it's probably best to admit straight away the aircraft in this tale are not quite up to the mark. Don't let that put you off, though, the tale is otherwise well drawn and the cover is particularly fine.

The tale itself is particularly hard - especially on the Japanese. There's little sympathy for any of them in the story, written less than 20 years after the war finished.

Still, it's a fine adventure and one I hope you'll enjoy.
