5 Lowe, George, Editor. TRUE BRIT: THE TOUGHEST 12 COMMANDO COMIC BOOKS EVER!
London Carlton Books 2006 184442121X / 9781844421213 3rd Printing Flexible laminated Covers Very Good 
783 pp, 9 7/8" H. Pictorial covers and endpapers, integral ribbon bookmark. B&w cartoons and reproductions of original covers. "For the generation of men whose interest in military history was triggered by reading war comics in their youth, here at last is Commando's toughest-ever collection of Second World War stories. 'True Brit' showcases the best fighting action - and at a size 25 percent bigger than the originals for maximum impact! Chosen by the current editor, George Low, who has worked on Commando comic books for over 40 years, the brilliantly drawn stories in this brand-new classic collection range from daring bomber raids over Germany and close-combat fighting against hard-as-nails Japanese in Burma, through depth-charge blasted midget submarine warfare, to hard-hitting battles across North Africa, Italy and northern Europe. Evocatively titled stories, such as 'The Fighting Few', 'Bright Blade of Courage', 'Flak Fever' and 'Fight or Die!', show fearless Tommies in their finest hours, giving a good honest drubbing to fanatical foes from all the Axis countries." Some faint wrinkles in laminate on bottom half of front cover - also at bottom corner of rear cover, tiny dent on fore-edge of front cover.
