Books Info:

Commando Calendar 2012 free pdf Commando, formerly known as Commando War Stories in Pictures, is a series of British comic books whose content is primarily set during the First and Second World Wars. Since June 1961, when Commando fi rst burst onto the scene, the comic books have presented tales of bravery and confl ict on land, sea, and in the air during the two World Wars. Still in print today, Commando is known for its distinctive 7 A-- 51/2 inch, 68-page format as well as its dramatic storytelling and strong black and white artwork. Each comic book tells a complete story with its own action, drama and confl ict, portraying and celebrating the lives of ordinary young men who have been drafted into the services. With its mixture of excitement, courage and danger, every issue has always been eagerly anticipated and enthusiastically collected by Commando's thousands of loyal and dedicated fans. They relish each story's exciting plot and strong characters set as they are against a well-researched and authentic background of warfare that never appears trivial or glamorous but is not unremittingly bleak either. The servicemen in Commando fi ght their recognised enemy with courage, patriotism and a spirit of 'the tough get going when the going gets tough' but they also come into confl ict with characters or authority within their own ranks. This mixture of good and bad is part of their charm and fascination. Good trounces evil but sometimes at a very high cost. The covers of the Commando comic have always been in colour and this calendar consists of 12 iconic cover images chosen from comics that have appeared over the past 50 years - a wonderful tribute to the UK's most popular and enduring war comic.
