Charley's War Volume 01
THE MOST RENOWNED WORK IN THE
HISTORY OF BRITISH COMICS RETURNS FOR
THE CENTENARY OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR.
by many as the most important war story to appear in comics, Charley’s War
follows the working class Charley Bourne who eagerly signs up to fight on the
Western front in 1916. The idealistic sixteen-year-old experiences a hellish
world of trench warfare where every day is a bitter fight for survival. Charley
and his friends soon realise they have been thrust into a conflict where
ordinary people are expected to throw away their lives to serve the selfish
interests of those in power!
by British comics legend Pat Mills and featuring the breathtaking artwork of
Joe Colquhoun, this first volume of Charley’s War includes Charley’s
harrowing participation in one of the bloodiest encounters in human history -
The Battle of the Somme.
