5.0 out of 5 stars Ennis mines his love of WW2 for a series of great stories 5 July 2016
By Frank L. Greenagel II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
These are fantastic war stories that Garth Ennis has written about everyday military members (instead of high ranking officers and legendary heroes) that detail how regular people paid the price for the poor decisions that rulers, politicians and commanding officers regularly made. This volume collects four tales, each illustrated by a different expert artist.

The first story is about a German tank crew in 1945 whose commander is haunted by the atrocities he has committed and just wants to surrender to the Americans in order to save his crew. Ennis shows the humanity, bravery and love of the common German man and why the world shouldn't paint every German circa 1933-45 with an evil brush.

The second tale is about the British soldiers (English officers, Irish soldiers) in the Italian campaign and how they were much maligned in London (by some) for having it easy in Italy (it wasn't) while the men in France were doing the "real fighting" (real fighting was all over the globe). The captain of the company is a sensible man and a quality officer - a rare case both then and now.

5.0 out of 5 stars I said I wasn't going to buy this, lol... 6 Sept. 2016
By Elizabeth M. Nickerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I own the original run from Vertigo in single comic for each of the four stories. So naturally, I said I wouldn't be buying this but then I saw the difference from the original newsprint copies to this modern high grade paper ones. This is so much better, the colors really come alive! Sensational stories, great writing, and great art plus now the modern presentation. And I said I wasn't going to collect this twice, lol!
