Each of the Boy Commandos were once children from different countries who were left as orphans during the second World War. Captain Rip Carter gathered them together to be a special fighting force of young men.

Together, the Boy Commandos worked together to help fight Nazi forces in the Pacific and European theatres of World War II. Following the war, they continued to fight evil together for some years after, with a few member changes.

In 1944, they notably teamed up with the another team of children, the Newsboy Legion, to fight American traitors in a New York City subway, making them allies.

Jan eventually left the team, having found a new family to call his own.  Alfie left and was replaced by a Texan member named Tex.  Andre was later preplaced by Percy Clearwater, a young genius.
