The last stories featuring the heroes of the Battlefields series, by writer Garth Ennis and artists Russ Braun and Carlos Ezquerra. In the dying days of the Second World War, a fiery crash leaves Russian fighter pilot Anna Kharkova badly wounded and exiled from her own people. Anna begins an odyssey that will take her from the killing skies of the Cold War to the horrific Soviet punishment camps, her doubts about the cause she fought for growing all the while. But at the top of the world, high above the freezing Arctic Ocean, the former Night Witch finds she has one last card to play, in The Fall and Rise of Anna Kharkova. April, 1951: as massed Chinese armies descend on UN forces defending South Korea, a British infantry brigade digs in amidst the hills of the Imjin River sector. With them are the Centurion tanks of the 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars, including tough WW2 veteran Sergeant Stiles. But Stiles is a man haunted by the horrors of his past, and when the Communist offensive smashes into the tiny British force, he must battle his own demons along with the enemy hordes. The story of the Tankies reaches its violent conclusion, in The Green Fields Beyond.
