Sticking it to Jerry all over again!,
This review is from: The Best of "Battle": Vol 1 (Paperback)
This compilation of classic 'Battle' strips, from the founders of Britain's comics revolution, took me back to boyhood; back to 'proper' war films, Airfix Spitfires, Junkers and commandos; when booting the Hun all the way back to Berlin was every school boy's aspiration.
In all seriousness, though, this really is a great read, full of the sort of characters just not fashionable, or - blast it - politically correct now; Major Eazy, Bootneck Boy, D-Day Dawson, Darkie's Mob etc, etc...leap from the monochrome print with Sten guns blazing - evoking that glorious 'Finest Hour' in our history; where men were men and there wasn't a male grooming product (or 'metrosexual') in sight - brilliant stuff!
