No Man's World only 99p Today!

99 years ago today, the brave men of the 13th Battalion of the Pennine Fusiliers  disappeared from the Western Front. Some say they were simply decimated by the brutal action of the day, but we know better...

To celebrate the glorious exploits of the men of the 13th, and their adventures as depicted  in the No Man's World series, Abaddon have dropped the price of these tales of Interplanetary Tommies to only 99p (or (£2.99 if you fancy the Omnibus, which is also stuffed with extra goodies).

So throw up a salute to the men of the 13th and put your hand in your wallet on this most auspicious of occasions...

No Man’s World is out now!

99 years on

Today commemorates the 99th anniversary of the disappearance of 13th Battalion of Pennine Fusiliers.

On 1st November 1916, 900 men of the 'Broughtonthwaite Mates' went over the top at Harcourt  to attack a German stronghold. They vanished into a gas cloud that cleared to reveal only what became known as the Harcourt Crater, the largest crater on the western front.

The official Government explanation was the detonation of a German mine using experimental explosives, a view generally held until 1926 when  canisters of film found by a French farmer allegedly showed silent footage the battalion fighting for their lives on an apparently alien world. To this day the government denies the Lefeuvre footage as a hoax.

With the hundredth anniversary approaching, perhaps the truth behind the fate of the Pennine Fusiliers will finally be revealed.
