[References: Flanagan (1994) "Australian Vintage Paperback Guide", pp. 96-100; see also the blog by John Harrison (2007) "The Lurid War Paperbacks of Horwitz Publications" (, accessed July 2020) - "The sadistic war paperbacks published by Horwitz exist in a strange, unique twilight world all of their own. While publishers in the US (Monarch) and the UK (Badger) produced war paperbacks with rough plots and provocative cover art, none were as intrinsically mean spirited as the Horwitz titles, which focused - or to be more precise, wallowed - almost solely on the cruel torture and punishments which the Nazi and Japanese powers handed out to civilians (in particular, comely young females) and the Allied armies during the 1939 - 1945 world war."]
