Death Squad cover

Rebellion’s Battle reprints are coming thick and fast, with Death Squad next in line. This collection of strips from the comic tell the story of a German punishment battalion, sent to fight the Russians on the Eastern Front.

Punishment battalions were formed by the German army to deal with the soldiers who couldn’t or wouldn’t fit in with regular troops. The horrors they faced trained them on the job, with only the best surviving, turning them into one of the most-feared fighting forces of the the war.

Written by Alan Hebden and illustrated by Eric Bradbury and Carlos Ezquerra, Death Squad has been described by Garth Ennis as “Battle at its best.”
