Albert Yates
a fun little story about a female fighter pilot in Russia, it's a follow-up to the first battlefields book, night witches.

the story showcases the struggle of females in the war, and how strong they can be.
Although it’s vol. 6 of the Battlefields series, it’s really Part 2 of the story begun in vol. 1, Night Witches, and I like this one even better. Anna Kharkova has graduated from wood & fabric biplanes and is now a combat pilot in a men’s fighter squadron. She’s so obviously based on Anna Yegorova, whose autobiography, Red Sky Black Death, I am coincidentally reading at the same time—even the covers are quite similar. And yet Kharkova’s story remains her own, which considering that she’s a S ...more

This is the sequel to Battlefields, Volume 1: Night Witches and although I liked it, the first volume felt much stronger to me. In Motherland former Night Witch Anna Kharkova continues her WWII journey after being posted to a single-seat fighter aircraft and we go on a personal journey of dealing with loss and accepting change. Russia's tragic way of dealing with the enemy and the tremendous amount of sacrifices that accompanies it leant this story some additional emotional weight. Recommended i ...more

After Sergeant Stiles in vol 5, Anna Kharkova and her bad luck return as well for this sixth volume of Ennis' WWII anthology. Kharkova is now unwillingly promoted to command but is stymied by cowardly political officers and a constant lack of materiel.

A worthy sequel to Night Witches and a great realization of Ennis' potential when he keeps his serious pants on for three damn issues. Can't wait for the final arc featuring Anna, now in charge of her own squadron. Of women, you ask? OF SOLDIERS,

Garth Ennis' Battlefields started with a very high note about a story of Russian women fighter pilots in WWII. So, logically, the series wraps up with a story of Russin fighter pilots in WWII. Also, logically, the story is equally as good as was the first story. Brilliant stuff.

Ennis began his comic-writing career in 1989 with the series Troubled Souls. Appearing in the short-lived but critically-acclaimed British anthology Crisis and illustrated by McCrea, it told the story of a young, apolitical Protestant man caught up by fate in the violence of the Irish 'Troubles'. It spawned a sequel, For a Few Troubles More, a broad Belfast-based comedy featuring two supporting ch ...more
