Created 15 years after the completion of his Eisner Award-winning WWI masterwork It Was the War of the Trenches (2010), this is no mere sequel or extension, but a brand new, wholly individual graphic novel that serves as a companion piece to Trenches but can be read entirely on its own. This unnerving and poignant masterpiece shares with Trenches its sustained sense of outrage, pitch-black gallows humour and impeccably scrupulous historical exactitude.

Review:
'I know quite a few of you have been waiting a long time for this (including me), but any work by the great Jacques Tardi is always worth waiting for... It shows the burning anger at the squalor, pain, death and injustice of that awful, awful conflict... This is going straight into my own collection, and in my opinion every decent graphic novel collection needs some Tardi in it, he is one of the great masters of the medium.' - Forbidden Planet International

'Credited with creating a new style of expressionistic illustration dubbed 'the New Realism,' Tardi is one of the greatest comics creators in the world, blessed with a singular vision and adamantine ideals... A lavish and subtle hardback in full colour and moody, evocative tonal sequences.' - Comics Review

'Poignant, tragic and aethetically beautiful, it's arguably powerful enough to be mentioned in the same breath as such classic war literature as All Quiet on the Western Front.' - Bizarre

'An honest, brutal book, that gives a voice to the common soldier, caught up in the conscription to a war he barely understands. It's a statement of solidarity with a reluctant hero and a harsh reminder that we must never, ever let this happen again.' - Grovel

'Not an easy read, but what a powerful one. As far as anti-war comics material goes, this is pretty much as hard-hitting as it gets, painting a very graphic picture of the horrors of World War I, a particular personal bÍte noire of Tardi's.... There is so much to admire in this work... For anyone interested in WWI, or just in trying to understand what it must have been like to be to be on those battlefields and go what those gallant men went through, this is essential reading.' --Page 45

'I'm a huge admirer of the work of Jacques Tardi I consider him to be one of the finest creators in the comics medium in Europe, with a diverse body of work and styles... Tardi's fury pours off the page, mixed with huge empathy and sympathy for the suffering of those forced into those awful events, and there in lies the key which makes this such an affecting, powerful, emotional read: Tardi takes the vast scale of the war, the unbelievable casualty rate and he humanises it, puts it on a personal level the reader can comprehend, understand, sympathise with.' Forbidden Planet

'Haunting and moving, it captures the horror and absurdity of the Great War, the war to end all wars, from the perspective of one soldier.... It is bleak and harrowing in its portrayal, but utterly captivating and thought-provoking at the same time.' -- Forbidden Planet
