Appearing in "The Spawn of Death"Edit
Synopsis for "The Spawn of Death"Edit
The Young Allies are at a local dock to try and prevent information about American convoys from being leaked to Nazi spies. Spotting some men beating on some sailors, the Young Allies come to his aid sending his attackers fleeing. They carry the beaten sailor back to his ship and offer their services to the captain. The captain refuses to let the boys join the crew because they are too young. However, as the ship pulls anchor and sets sail for Europe, the Young Allies stow aboard in the cargo hold. They are soon found when the ship is out at sea thanks to Tubby's sneezing and they are brought before the captain who agrees to give them a chance to earn their keep aboard the vessel. The boys soon find themselves swabbing the poop-deck for all their trouble, a job they don't like overly much but do anyway.
However the doldrums end when the ship is suddenly attacked by a Nazi battleship. When the ships gunners are killed defending the ship, the Young Allies try to defend it, but it proves to be fruitless. With the ship incapacitated the Young Allies watch as the Nazis begin rounding up the survivors. However, the Young Allies resist the Nazi soldiers boarding but are soon overpowered and loaded aboar a Nazi sub. Despite their loss, an American bomber destroys the German battleship before the U-Boat lowers below the ocean. The furious captain of the U-Boat tells the Young Allies that he intends to put them to work for the Third Reich.
The Young Allies soon find themselves transported to France where they are to be taken to a concentration camp and put to work. When the transport truck carrying them gets caught at a barricade put up by Free French resistance fighters trying to stop an ammunition convoy. The Young Allies use this moment to break free and mow down their attackers. Leaving one of the Nazis alive to question, they learn that the prisoner truck was sent first to be caught in any potential ambushes before the ammunition convoy passed through the area. The Allies gun down the Nazi and then prepare an ambush for the ammunition convoy, destroying it with little opposition.
Finding a secret Nazi airfield, the Young Allies soon find themselves surrounded by soldiers. In order to avoid trouble, they all pretend to be French citizens, relying on a crash course in French from Jeff, however Whitewash lets some English slip out blowing their cover when they are brought before the German commanding officer. They are then put to work building shells for the Nazis until a French prisoner named Le Clere tells them of a secret cache of weapons hidden by French resistance fighters on the Maginot line. The Young Allies them rally together, breaking out of the prison camp, relying on Toro's flame powers to blow up the ammunition stores.
Travelling to the Maginot line, they find the ruined base previously used by the French and locate the hidden weapons. When they capture a Nazi soldier who stumbles upon them, they feed him with false information of a gathering of troops that will be armed in the area and allow the Nazi to escape to tell his superiors. This of course, leads the Nazis into a trap where the Young Allies catch them off guard and decimate their ranks.Rushing back to the camouflaged Nazi airfield they spot some American fighter planes passing by and Toro uses his flame powers to signal them to attack the base. Stealing a German Focke Wolff, they take to the air and help shoot the German fighters out of the air for the Americans. However, despite their superior gunning skills they take some hits themselves and crash into the ocean. Spotting a Nazi bouy, they seek refuge aboard it. When a group of Nazis arrive to rescue their "comrades", the Young Allies jump them and take control of their boat, forcing them onto the buoy while they escape back to the United States in the boat.

When he is confronted by the dragon that defends the castle, Merlin steps in once again to rescue the boy from danger.
