Following up from The Beginning, War Journal begins with the establishment of violent, sadistic hired killer Barracuda, whom Castle first comes into conflict with while targeting ruthless and corrupt corporate businessman Harry Ebbing.
Upon assumedly seeing the last of Barracuda after a grisly fight to the death, Castle finds himself en route to Afghanistan to back up Kathryn O'Brien who has gone in search of revenge for past monstrosities committed against her by certain members of the Taliban.
But old enemy, Russian General Nikolai Alexandrovich Zakharov and Castle's attempted assassin from ‘The Beginning’ Bill Rawlins, murderous ex-husband of Kathryn O'Brien, await them and when O'Brien is killed after Zakharov and Rawlins' plan fails, Castle learns of a shocking truth.
So when back home he discovers that Barricuda has murdered Yorkie Mitchell and his wife, and that Mitchell has had the fact tortured out of him that O'Brien secretly bore a child to Castle, he's drawn into the longest, coldest, darkest war of wits he has ever fought, trying to second guess an enemy that is out for the ultimate revenge and knows exactly how to destroy him.
From the war zone to the family home, The Punisher fights his grimmest and bloodiest war to date, discovering that he still has very far to fall!
