Commando: J-For-Judas - James Swallow

Courage in the face of disaster -- a famous trait of the RAF throughout World War Two. But not in the case of Johnny Bagshott. After condemning his team to a POW camp, can the flighty young navigator work with the devious Hauptmann Hasse to regain standing with his friends... or will he betray them all and help destroy a top British base the country would never recover from?!

(Like the other issue of COMMANDO written by James Swallow that I read, this is an excellent, well-written yarn. It combines both an aviation story and a POW story, two sub-genres of war fiction that I enjoy, and has a suitably despicable villain, as depicted on that great cover by Ian Kennedy. Swallow has written at least one other issue, and I'm sure I'll get to it soon.)
