This review is from: Charley's War: 17 October, 1916-21 February, 1917 (Hardcover)
Charley's War continues in to its third volume. If you havent read or seen Charley's war then you should, its a brilliantly conceived introduction to the horrors of the First World War trenches originally shown in the war comic Battle.
In this volume Charley is fighting the German Judgement Troopers during their counter offensive on the Somme, the battle eventually grinds to halt, Charley is wounded and he is sent home on leave to London in time for a German airship air raid on the East End of London
Although this was orginally aimed at children in the Battle comic it appeals to adults too with its strong anti-war message and as a teacher I have used it in classes about World War one to great success.
I do wish that Titan would publish more than one volume a year though, its very frustrating waiting a year for the next one to come out, I'm sure they could easily do two a year! Please Titan, pulbish more, quicker!
Read this book! It really needs 10 stars, its unique.
