The eponymous Boy Commandos was an international elite commando squad of orphaned children led by the adult Captain Rip Carter that fought on all fronts of World War II. The squad originally consisted of André Chavard from France; Alfie Twidgett from England, Jan Haasan from the Netherlands, and Dan "Brooklyn" Turpin from the United States.

The team's adventures continued well past the war, even though there were many roster changes. Jan left first, having found relatives in his homeland to stay with. Alfie was replaced by a Texan named Tex, followed by André, who was replaced by Percy Clearweather. As the members of the Boy Commandos have grown older they have left the squad to pursue other pursuits
