The fourth of eight "War Story" One-Shots all written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by a number of artists.
Narrated by her executive officer, The Nightingale is a ship assigned to escort convoys on the Murmansk Run. When they are given foolish orders that lead to ships under their care being lost she gets a reputation as cursed. Her crew are forced to make the ultimate sacrifice to set things right.
When asked at Wizard World, Philadelphia, what comic Ennis was the most proud of, his response was this issue, saying, "if I had to hold up one thing and say this is what I can do, that would be it."
