The sequel to 2009's The Night Witches! Lieutenant Anna Kharkova is posted to single-seat fighter aircraft and sent straight into action. Hardened and embittered by the loss of her comrades, Anna is only too keen to get her teeth into the enemy - but with Russian and German armies about to collide in the titanic battle of Kursk, her first flight with her new squadron may well be her last! And once the Soviet secret police start sniffing around, death in battle may well be preferable anyway. Soon, horrific losses land Anna with the very last thing she wants: more responsibility, in the shape of eight young replacement pilots to be trained for combat. But with the Battle of Kursk reaching its climax, rookies are nothing but lambs to the slaughter - and even the most experienced pilots find themselves flying on borrowed time. The former Night Witch meets her destiny, as Motherland - and the second series of Battlefields - conclude with a bang. Collects all three issues of Motherland, along with a complete cover gallery. The former Night Witch meets her destiny, in a fast-paced tale of aerial combat by Garth Ennis and Russ Braun with covers by Garry Leach!

Review: Battlefields, Volume 1: Night Witches (Battlefields #1)

User Review  - Heino Colyn - Goodreads

A fantastic WWII story told from the perspective of a group of women known as the Night Witches. They were true heroes and I was surprised that I didn't know anything about them before reading this book. A story that needs to be told and it is a bonus that Garth Ennis does it so well.
