Action Man Counter Attack

Counter Attack

The British forces were being smashed to pieces. “Retreat” was the only command. Dunkirk was the gathering point for all the survivors.

Encircled by German guns, thousands of soldiers desperately waited their turn to be rescued by the armanda of small boats from across the Channel. As the Germans ceaselessly attacked, the one thing the British needed was – time.

Action Man and G.I. Joe knew that something had to be done to divert the enemy and slow down their advance. There was only one thing they could do – with a small group of men the counter-attacked…..

Operation Sky-Drop

Operation Sky-Drop was under way. The objective: to capture two vital bridges so that the Allied advance could cross the river.

The plane towing the glider carrying Action Man and G.I. Joe and their men was hit, and the glider had to make a crash landing. They found themselves off target, in the evacuated town of Rachen. They were on the wrong side of the river and they had a Panzer division with over 30 tanks breathing down their necks. Action Man knew that if those tanks reached the main task force, the Allied advance would fail. There was only one answer – Action Man and G.I. Joe had to put those tanks out of action…

Action Man Hold The Bridge

Hold The Bridge

If the American offensive was going to succeed, the Bridge at Breve had to be captured from the Germans. Without control of the bridge the offensive couldn’t succeed – and thousands of lives would be lost.

The Germans were waiting for the task force – and the attack was totally crushed. But the plane carrying Action Man and his men had been hit and the commandos had had to bale out early. With only a handful of men Action Man knew the chances of taking the bridge were remote – but they had to try. And then Action Man met G.I. Joe and the odds swung a little in their favour.

The Taking of Monte Carillo

The Taking of Monte Carillo

Inside the hill known as Monte Carillo the Germans had set up an intricate communications system with their men on the ground. Nothing could move on the plain without being seen and then blown to pieces. The Allied tanks and infantry had been devastated; the bridgehead had come to a halt.

Trapped in a bombed-out village with a handful of men, Action Man and G.I. Joe knew that Monte Carillo had to be put out of action. It was an impossible mission – but they had to achieve to impossible.

Snow, Ice and Bullets

Snow, Ice and Bullets

Trapped in Norway by the German invasion, Professor Lindfors, a brilliant scientist, was desperate to escape and work to free his country. The Germans, however, wanted him to work in their laboratories.

Action Man and G.I. Joe had a top secret mission – to get the Professor back to England. But when they finally managed to reach Norway, they found that the Germans were one step ahead of them- Professor Lindfors had been taken to the impregnable prison at Castle Richbleau…

The Tough Way Out by Mike Brogan

The Tough Way Out

The mission was more than successful. Action Man, G.I. Joe and their two companions had blown the railway tunnel sky-high, but as they headed for the beach, they came face to face with a German patrol, fifty strong. There was no escape.

Taken to the impregnable POW camp known as ‘The Mill’, they began to understand why no-one had ever escaped from it. But Action Man and G.I. Joe weren’t going to let that stop them. The escape plan was improbable and the odds stacked against them, but there was just a chance they might succeed…
