Line Of Fire: Diary Of An Unknown Soldier

Publisher: Phoenix Yard Books

Review

In this striking graphic novel adaptation of a 100-year-old diary, the events of the first two months of WWI are told through the eyes of the unknown soldier. This is living history in the form of one man's story silhouetted against the historical events of 1914 that formed and transformed the world we live in today.

Amazingly, the author/artist Barroux was walking down a street in Paris when he saw the diary on a rubbish heap. The rescued manuscript was then transformed in to this amazing graphic novel.
