"This is Battle at its best" - Garth Ennis
All-out, all-action, no mercy - this new Death Squad collection
brings together the brutal classic story from the groundbreaking and hugely
influential Battle comic!
Featuring gritty art from Eric Bradbury and Carlos Ezquerra, Death
Squad follows the deadliest band of fighters on the Eastern Front - a band of
German soldiers trying to survive in one of the deadliest theatres of warfare
in human history.
During World War Two the Eastern Front was Hell on Earth - German
Punishment Battalions were thrown into the thick of the conflict where they
were expected to fight well and die hard. In these harshest of conditions only
the strongest warriors survived.
Enter the Death Squad – Grandad, Swede, Licker, Gus and Frankie.
Alone they were failures and outcasts, but together they were one of the most
formidable combat units the Russians ever faced!
This uncompromising series is emblematic of Battle's
groundbreaking no-nonsense approach to storytelling, with writer Alan Hebden
pulling no punches in the depiction of brutal fighting on the Eastern Front.
This book collects the Death Squad stories
published in Battle Action from 12 July 1980 - 4 June 1981, as well as
the Battle Annual 1982.
