The Home of Heroes


Charlie Dayton was no soldier... but that didn't mean he didn't know how to fight. Living in New York in 1941, Charlie was hot-tempered and ready to join the war. The only problem was America wasn't. But that didn't stop Charlie from hopping on the next cargo ship to England - prepared to help out in any way he could.

But Charlie was only half-way across the Atlantic when the war caught up with him and so began...

After six long years of struggle, Germany finally surrendered in 1945. But for U-Boat Kriegsmarine Kapitan Heinrich Kessler, this was a cowardly betrayal of everything he believed in. He hid his submarine in South America, vowing never to surrender it to the enemy. Then, nearly twenty years later, Kessler had had enough. Germany was split in two. American and British culture was dominating. It was time to act.

So Kessler called his crew to arms and sailed his submarine straight for Cuba…

In early 1943, more than three long years into the war, both sides were desperate. Scientists everywhere were experimenting with weaponry and technology, hoping they might turn the tides of battle in their favour. Professor David Alexander was one such man.

Working at a military base off the coast of Canada in the North Atlantic, Alexander was recruiting men to help test a new prototype for something codenamed Project Habakkuk…

With the scars of the Second World War still healing, it wasn’t long before Britain entered another conflict.

Alec Murray was serving in the Black Watch in Kenya during the Mau Mau Uprising – but it wasn’t the Rebels he fought there.

Injured and separated from their CO, Alec and his friends were taken in by a native village, themselves hounded by raiders profiteering from the war.

But, fighting alongside the villagers, Alec did not know what impact he would have on the people there, or how much they would impact him…

Deafening engines rumbled over a small farmhouse in Norfolk. It was not the hum of a healthy plane, and the listeners below knew a crash landing would be imminent. What they didn’t know, and what they dreaded, was whether the aircraft was theirs… or Jerry’s.

But, the next morning, when the four young workers of the Women’s Land Army began their morning chores, they found the downed plane as saw who had been aboard it…

Captain Tom Stewart was bleeding internally. Their Seahawk was downed in a sandstorm; the rotors chewed up and the radio dead. 

His only hope of staying alive long enough to reach the Coalition Forces was Navy Doctor Captain Jane Daly. 

But with Iraqi soldiers patrolling on land and in the air, that would not be an easy task — especially when Tom was used to giving orders, not taking them.

It came out of nowhere, a glint of moonlight reflected in the dark night sky. The Luftwaffe pilot’s eyes frantically searched for his attacker in the murk of the evening, but it was invisible… a phantom.

Then it streaked across the clouds like a bat out of Hades, its guns blazing at the Messerschmitt 109. The German cried out his final words…

In the parched deserts of North Africa, water is the most precious resource and, for the Allied and Axis who fought there, it was the difference between life and death.

That’s why LRDG Captain Tommy Butler and Afrika Korps Hauptmann Arn Renner were willing to fight to the bitter end to claim an oasis — that is, until a third party entered the fray and Butler and Renner were forced to turn from enemies to allies.

But just how long would their alliance last?

What do a Lieutenant in the British Army, an East End criminal, a champion athlete, an Italian partisan, and an aged archaeologist all have in common?

Hiding in the thick snow, the Red Devil is watching.

In the battle-torn, bomb‑shelled carcass of Stalingrad, she stalks her prey.

Her sights aimed and her finger taut, she pulls the trigger…

In 1605, Guy Fawkes and his co-conspirators crept into the cellars under Parliament with a plot to blow up the British government.

More than three hundred years later, in 1943, a group of German spies led by the fanatic Hauptmann Harald Stein had the same idea. Following Guy Fawkes’ example, their plan was to blow up Churchill and the British government. Their target: Westminster.

Sergeant Ronnie Malloy stood alone on the French pier looking out towards the sea. The beach was deserted bar the smoking husks of discarded British trucks. The lines of men desperate to clamber aboard the ships bound for Blighty were all gone and the place was silent except for the quiet ebb of the tide. In the distance, Ronnie watched the armada of little ships, chock-full of men, sail away to Britain, leaving him behind. He had been abandoned… one of the last men in Dunkirk.
