Thunder, Captain (I). Terry Thunder, a Captain in the British Army, ends his term of enlistment but, too easily bored, reups and is put in charge of the Congo Lancers. The Lancers, unfortunately, are not a highly trained group, and are in fact rather rough-and-ready. But he has their respect and leads them in various adventures in the “Yambezi--deep in the African jungles” and other parts of Africa, from Egypt to South Africa, fighting against slave traders, angry natives, pyramid plunderers, German agents, witch doctors, voodoo houngans, and other such.
