Battlefields is a comic book metaseries written by Garth Ennis, comprising three mini-series, each illustrated by a different artist and published by Dynamite Entertainment. The completed Volume 1 thereof is divided into three self-contained mini-series of three issues each, all of which are set during WWII: the first mini-series, with artist Russell Braun, titled The Night Witches is set on the Eastern front and concerns a women-only Soviet bomber regiment; the second series, with artist Peter Snejbjerg, titled Dear Billy concerns a British nurse, who had survived rape and attempted execution by Japanese soldiers in Singapore, and her relationship with a decorated flying ace; and the third series is Tankies with artist Carlos Ezquerra, and is about an inexperienced British tank crew of Londoners in a Churchil Tank led by a Geordie veteran as they attempt to catch up with their company, enduring attacks by Nazi Tiger tanks as the Battle of Normandy rages on. Ennis announced that a second volume of Battlefields is to be published in 2010 with a similar format, with two storylines being sequels to Night Witches and Tankies. The other, Happy Valley, is also the first of these to be published, with art by P. J. Holden. As is typical of Ennis' work, stark, granular and searing commentaries on war and its effects on the human condition.
