    A little snippet into the British's foray into Normandy and France. It follows a green tank outfit as the Brits get their arses kicked. Definitely displays the horrific side of war. This book is very graphic. Some of the accented dialog is hard to pick up. I found it's easier to understand if you speak it out loud so you can hear it too. Once I started with that I didn't have any issues. Of course, you probably want to do that when you're alone so you don't look like a child learning to read.

    Típica historia de guerra un poco intrascendente en la que Ennis demuestra su conocimiento sobre muchos aspectos de la segunda guerra mundial: armamento, vehículos, hechos históricos, anécdotas variadas de distintas batallas... no es una gran historia pero son los detalles que salpican aquí y allí lo que hacen de este cómic una lectura entretenida.

    I get what they were trying to do with the story. the team battles during the European stage of the war were important, especially astound dday. but the language, holy cripes, I couldn't figure out what the were trying to say most of the time. 4/5 for art 2/5 for dialog I get what they were trying to do with the story. the team battles during the European stage of the war were important, especially astound dday. but the language, holy cripes, I couldn't figure out what the were trying to say most of the time. 4/5 for art 2/5 for dialog

    Closest Garth Ennis has ever got to his youth of Commando-stories. There were climpses of brutality of war, but mainly, this was an adventure. With Esquerra art. Nothing can beat that.

    Another solid military adventure the type of which Ennis can write in his sleep by now.

    'Reet! Let's see if we can find the war then!' The death of a tank squad commander sees the introduction of some hilarious dialogue from a character with a Geordie accent. I have to read it out loud to understand it, but it's the funniest war story I've read in a while. The British tanks were always inferior to the German ones, though the dedication of their crews is just as high. They have to work harder for a kill, but they never back down.

The British tanks were always inferior to the German ones, though the dedication of their crews is just as high. They have to work harder for a kill, but they never back down. The Geordie character has escaped the several tanks destroyed under his command, so his new crew is obviously concerned with his losing streak. He does have luck on his side this time though which seems to extend to his crew as well.

    Typically humorous tale from the team of Garth Ennis and the sadly missed Carlos Ezquerra following a tank regiment on the front line.

    Doesn't have as tight a story as the first two. Seems a bit mean to say when it's real though... Doesn't have as tight a story as the first two. Seems a bit mean to say when it's real though...

    Volume 3 of the series is not as good as the earlier stories. Like the previous volume it’s based during WW 2 only the theater this time around is Europe. It’s about a novice British tank crew facing the Germans who are against the walls after the Normandy landing. Loved how the author shows the real conditions of the troops, the actual fighting strength and weakness on both sides & the tactics used. The book didn’t have much going on for itself on the plot front; it’s more about the characteriz Volume 3 of the series is not as good as the earlier stories.

The book didn’t have much going on for itself on the plot front; it’s more about the characterization which makes for solid officers, would have loved more insight on any of those characters. Some of the dialogues and incidents are a gem. This volume again has a new artist and his work is good, the gore art with lots of destruction is done up well. If i were not comparing it to the previous volumes the comic would have been a solid 4 star.

    ok, character is not ALWAYS plot. there could have been a bit more plot to this but it OOZED character! I was especially impressed by the SS tank officer who had about 3 frames onstage and didn't actually SAY anything, yet made me yell aloud spontaneously, "YOU F***ING NAZI BASTARD" (almost the identical words of the guy who spoke in the next frame--he chose an even balder epithet--but I didn't know that yet) I didn't enjoy this anywhere near as much as the first in the series, Night Witches, but ok, character is not ALWAYS plot. there could have been a bit more plot to this but it OOZED character!

    Good story telling and far more realistic than the war comics I read in my youth.

    Tank..men in Tank Tanks...got trashed by lesser German force...Tanks exploding. People shouting. Emotions were oozing. It was not as good as Night Witches or Dear Billy.
