Death Squad

Released 25th Nov 2020

 "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.

This limited edition hardcover is available exclusively from the Treasury of British Comics and 2000 AD webshops.
