You probably know all this if you're reading this review, but just in case: for the uninitiated:

Battle Picture weekly was a weekly British Comics from 1970's that, along with fellow titles Action and 2000AD, revolutionised British comics by bringing the reader stories that were grimmer, gritter, and more realistic than those told before. Action was general action stories from various genres. 2000AD was science fiction stories. And Battle brought us war stories. A very popular genre at the time, since World War Two had finished just over thirty years before and was still reasonably fresh in the mind.

Launched in early 1976, after the comic had been going for a little while, was a new story featuring the exploits of Major Eazy. When British troops involved in the 1943 landings in Sicily find their commanding officer killed moments after they landed, a new Major comes along to take charge. Eazy. A man who dresses in a rather casual outfit. Smokes. Has zero respect for authority and procedure. And does things in a very casual and often laid back manner. He drives a Bentley around the battlefields. But he's also a superb marksman, a brilliant tactician, and excellent in a fight.

Alongside stalwart and long suffering sidekick Sgt. Daly, this volume collects the first two Major Eazy series, which take him all the way from Sicily, and north up Italy right to the end of the war in May 1945.

All the stories presented here run for three pages and are completely self contained. Although some will go slightly longer in the page count and there is one two parter.

Thus you get thirty four instalments, all in this one large hardback collection.

If like me, you came across from time to time when you were younger read the odd war comics such as Battle and Eagle, Major Easy was 1 of the Characters that stuck in my brain. For years I wondered how it all started and now thanks to the above collection I can see what I have been missing. The stories are short, sharp and straight to the point. It shows how a major in the British army smoked his cigarillo's (short, narrow cigar) while driving and subsequently sleeping in the heart of a battle managed to outwit both his allies and the Germans.

The book is a hardback cover with a paper sleeve which shows Major Easy in an iconic pose. He is showing an angry face while having a cigarillo in his mouth and at the same time holding a pistol in one hand and his sniper rifle in the other. The only downside that i found to the book, was that it was in black and white. Also the quality of the reproduction at times is not great, but you forget this once you start reading the stories.

For Fans of Command Comics and all other English war comics I would say that this is a gem and it will take pride of place in my bookshelf at home!

I remember this from the comics, but calling it Volume 1 when there's no sign of any others being released seems a bit pointless.
