This graphic novel - really a collection of short stories - is one of the great anti-war artistic statements of our times. It's scope is very ambitious : nothing less than the human condition, and it succeeds by focusing on the individual, the ordinary guys in the trenches. It is without doubt Tardi's "oper magistrum" : he draws, formats the page and writes with economy and power, to stunning -literally! - effect. I have never seen/read/heard the daily reality of war portrayed with such intense compassion (for the poor [people) who actually fight it) and hate (for those who send them to slaughter). A very hard read, best taken in small doses. Will leave you shell-shocked.
