Book Review – The Stringbags (Advertorial)

Written by Garth Ennis; Drawn by P J Holden; Coloured by Kelly Fitzpatrick; Lettered by Rob Steen

If you do the incredible often enough, they’ll want you to do the impossible.

Writer Garth Ennis (PreacherThe BoysWar Stories) and artist P J Holden (BattlefieldsWorld of Tanks: Citadel) present the story of the men who crewed the Swordfish: from their triumphs against the Italian Fleet at Taranto and the mighty German battleship Bismarck in the Atlantic, to the deadly challenge of the Channel Dash in the bleak winter waters of their homeland. They lived as they flew, without a second to lose – and the greatest tributes to their courage would come from the enemy who strove to kill them.

Based on the true story of the Royal Navy’s Swordfish crews, The Stringbags is an epic tale of young men facing death in an aircraft almost out of time. Available from Dead Reckoning and wherever books are sold.
