First finished was a graphic novel authored by Garth Ennis, called Battlefields: The Tankies about the British advance off the Normandy beaches: not bad.
Second was another novel in David Wishart's Marcus Corvinus mystery series, called White Murder, about skullduggery in the old Roman racing circuit. Long, but interesting read.
Finally, there was another graphic novel, this being Battlefields: The Night Witches about Russian female pilots flying bombing missions against the German invaders in WWII. Author again was Garth Ennis.
