A handful of brave men who sneaked into German trenches in WW1 in order to capture enemy soldiers to question, blow up dugouts, check and destroy any mines the enemy were building or any other mission as directed from above.

Known as the Black Hand Gang or Suicide Club these men were only lightly armed with a truncheon and revolver which is easier to carry around.
