Battron: The Trojan Woman

An adventure tale of a French Legionnaire soldier set in North Africa. Battron, "a man without a country", is involved with the liberation of a free-booting French ship, the Martel, from a heavily guarded Vichy French port during World War II. The Allies want the ship destroyed; the Germans want to save it and keep it afloat. But a critical security leak in British intelligence could jeopardize not only the mission but his life. The key is the beautiful former mistress of the Martel’s captain, enlisted in the hope she can convince him to join the Free French movement with his ship. But has she told the Allies all she knows? And can Battron and his skillful commandos complete their dangerous mission in time under the looming shadow of the pending Allied invasion of North Africa? As things swirl around between the Free French, the Germans, and the German occupied French Vichy, a new player enters the fray...the Americans. Battron is caught between all of them in an attempt to secure the ship they all are desperate to obtain. Collects comic issues 1-3.
