    1. Another fantastic night witches story from Battlefields!What’s it about?Hard to say without giving piles of spoilers. I think I’ll just move on to spastic excitement!Why it gets 5 stars:The story is very interesting. I always find these night witches to be interesting people in history and Ennis does a d*** good job writing Battlefields stories about them!The characters are interesting. I like how even though this is a short story, I cared about the characters.The art is really good! There a [...]

    2. Garth Ennis' Battlefields started with a very high note about a story of Russian women fighter pilots in WWII. So, logically, the series wraps up with a story of Russin fighter pilots in WWII. Also, logically, the story is equally as good as was the first story. Brilliant stuff.

    3. a fun little story about a female fighter pilot in Russia, it's a follow-up to the first battlefields book, night witches. the story showcases the struggle of females in the war, and how strong they can be.

    4. Although it’s vol. 6 of the Battlefields series, it’s really Part 2 of the story begun in vol. 1, Night Witches, and I like this one even better. Anna Kharkova has graduated from wood & fabric biplanes and is now a combat pilot in a men’s fighter squadron. She’s so obviously based on Anna Yegorova, whose autobiography, Red Sky Black Death, I am coincidentally reading at the same time—even the covers are quite similar. And yet Kharkova’s story remains her own, which considering th [...]

    5. This is the sequel to Battlefields, Volume 1: Night Witches and although I liked it, the first volume felt much stronger to me. In Motherland former Night Witch Anna Kharkova continues her WWII journey after being posted to a single-seat fighter aircraft and we go on a personal journey of dealing with loss and accepting change. Russia's tragic way of dealing with the enemy and the tremendous amount of sacrifices that accompanies it leant this story some additional emotional weight. Recommended i [...]

    6. After Sergeant Stiles in vol 5, Anna Kharkova and her bad luck return as well for this sixth volume of Ennis' WWII anthology. Kharkova is now unwillingly promoted to command but is stymied by cowardly political officers and a constant lack of materiel. A worthy sequel to Night Witches and a great realization of Ennis' potential when he keeps his serious pants on for three damn issues. Can't wait for the final arc featuring Anna, now in charge of her own squadron. Of women, you ask? OF SOLDIERS, [...]
