Genre: War, Sketches Diary
As you guys know I have put a lot effort into learning about some of our students who went to WWI. As I have discovered these lads, learnt who they were, their stories I have become almost enthralled by the WWI saga. Stories of pain, filth, cold, mud, hopelessness. Stories of comradeship, bravery and loyalty. Stories of blind obedience, foolish leaders and impossible odds. They question I always end up with is ... why?
This is a Graphic Novel, drawn in bold sketch, not much detail, it is dark and simple- it is profound. Barroux the author was walking the streets of Paris and he found a diary, from a soldier in the First World War. It had been chucked out. No-one knows who it was, we just have his words - his recollections.
It always ends the same... Why?
