War Story is a comic series written by Garth Ennis. Two runs have been published by DC's Vertigo imprint - four issues in 2001-2002, and another four in 2003. Each issue is a stand-alone story drawn by a different artist. Most of the stories have a World War II setting, with one set during the Spanish Civil War. Two graphic novels, War Stories Vols 1 and 2, collect the two runs. Ennis is now working on a similar series of war stories, Battlefields, published by Dynamite Entertainment.
- "Johann's Tiger", drawn by Chris Weston and Gary Erskine. As the Second World War comes to an end, the commander of a German Tiger tank tries to convince his crew to desert and surrender to the Americans rather than die fighting the Russians.
- "D-Day Dodgers", drawn by John Higgins. A young British officer joins the Italian campaign, an effort which is being ignored and denigrated at home in favour of more high profile campaigns in France.
- "Screaming Eagles", drawn by Dave Gibbons. Four American soldiers secure a chateau the Nazis have used to store looted valuables and luxuries, and decide to enjoy themseves for a while before returning to the front.
- "Nightingale", drawn by David Lloyd. A British ship escorts convoys through the Arctic Circle, but her efforts are undermined by bad orders.
- "The Reivers", drawn by Cam Kennedy. An SAS officer in North Africa lets his lust for glory and combat undermine the morale of his men.
- "J for Jenny", drawn by David Lloyd. Moral conflict between British pilots over bombing civilian targets in Germany.
- "Condors", dawn by Carlos Ezquerra. During the Spanish Civil War, a German and an Irishman fighting for the nationalists, and an Englishman and a Spaniard fighting for the republicans, are forced to shelter from shelling in the same fox-hole.
- "Archangel", drawn by Gary Erskine. A disgraced Scottish pilot is assigned to a camship, a converted merchant ship carrying a fighter launched by catapult - a virtual suicide mission.
