GARTH ENNIS BATTLEFIELDS NIGHT WITCHES #3 (OF 3)
What did the
I really enjoyed this book. This is an excellent conclusion to this mini-series but is a stand alone story. If I had to pick a favorite line it would have to be “Nothing but Carrots and Candles for the rest of us”.
Garth Ennis paints a stark portrait of the atrocities of war. The only other book that I can think of that examines the plight of the bomber is Catch-22, the difference being that in Night Witches, you examine the targets of the bombs. I like the sympathetic hatred that Ennis builds towards the Germans. There are some very memorable panels: the medic panel, the Squad Mutt for dinner and of course the final panel. This book doesn’t leave you with a very fuzzy feeling in the end but is definitly worth the read.
