RAID 50: Heroes of Telemark by David Greentree
Illustrated by Peter Dennis

Glider crashOur 50th Raid, Heroes of Telemark, is the thrilling story of the Norwegian-led SOE raid that prevented Hitler from building an atomic bomb. The scene here depicts a Horsa Mk I glider, sent to destroy the electrolysis plant at Vemork, after it crashed during the night in a remote area called Fylgjesdalen. The front half is crushed, the wings have snapped off and the back end has detached. Eight men, including the pilots, died, leaving nine survivors.

Roman Heavy Cavalry (1)This second plate, taken from Elite 225: Roman Heavy Cavalry (1), depicts three cavalrymen from the second half of 4th Century AD. On the left is Clibanarius of Schola scutariorum clibanariorum (Constantinople, AD 380), in the middle, Clibanarius of Vexillatio equitum catafractariorum (Claudiopolis, c. AD 350). and Catafractarius, (battle of Argentoratum, AD 357). 

WPN 65: The Sterling Submachine Gun by Matthew Moss
Illustrated by Adam Hook and Alan Gilliand

The Sterling Submachine GunThis final plate is taken from The Sterling Submachine Gun. Here, two Royal Marines of Naval Party 8901 open fire on a group of approaching Argentine commandos at Government House in Port Stanley, with both sides utilising Sterlings. One of the Royal Marines opens fire with his L2A3 while the other aims his L1A1 self-loading rifle. The Argentine commandos are armed with a mix of weapons including a commercial suppressed Sterling-Patchett Mk 5, an Uzi and a commercial Sterling Mk 4.

Three very good pieces of artwork. For me the Roman heavy cavalry just edges it.

The Falklands plate is my favorite, but I can only imagine the amount of research it took to get the Telemark plate right.
