"Death to the Axis!" That was the battle cry that echoed through every issue of Complete War Novels Magazine. Army Rangers, Commandos, guerrillas, saboteurs... these were the subject of the short-lived World War II magazine series. Forsaking the high-flying war thrills of the skies found in other pulps, this magazine glorified the fighting men of the land forces. These stories pulled no punches. It was clear who were the good guys and who were the bad guys. The stories were written for readers who wanted to experience war thrills from the home front. Western Fiction Publishing added this new entry to its already established magazine line of Mystery Tales, Dynamic Science Stories, Detective Mysteries, and others. The inaugural issue was September 1942, it closed after only five bi-monthly issues with the May 1943 issue. Complete War Novels Magazine returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

If Bombers Don’t Do It, Bayonets Will!
by David Brandt
A hand-picked patrol of death — that was this hardbitten U.S. Ranger crew, thirty battle-toughened Yanks named by MacArthur behind thirty bloody bayonets, with a no-quarter fighting job to do in the teeth of machine-gun fire while back-stabbing Jap devils were blasting at them from every fox-hole and trench and ambush!
Tell It To The U.S. Rangers!
by Allan K. Echols
Here was the danger area, the invasion beachhead, the logical stretch for the Allies to open a second front, and the Yanks knew it and the Nazis knew it, and Lieutenant Clay Temple, Brooklyn, U.S.A., was set to fight this big push to the finish if single-handed he had to smash to bits that solid mass of Hun shore gun emplacements, barbed wire, minefields, pillboxes, and roving tanks!
