Synopsis

Charley's War: A Boy Soldier in the Great War by Pat Mills, Joe Colquhoun

From renowned UK comics writer Pat Mills ( Marshal Law, Requiem, Vampire Knight, Slaine ) and legendary artist Joe Colquhoun ( Johnny Red ) comes a truly classic piece of British comics history, by turns thrilling, humorous and horrifying. Often heralded as the greatest British comic strip ever created, Charley's War tells the gripping story of an underage British soldier called Charley Bourne fighting during World War I. Now with completely remastered comic strips, this is the definitive edition of Charley's War, covering Charley's first arrival in the trenches, the battle of the Somme, and a terrifying zeppelin raid over London. It is an ideal starting place for new readers.
