As long as comic books have existed, there have been comics about war. War Stories: A Graphic History is the first book to examine this genre of comics in depth, tracing the development of warfare – from Thermopylae to the Napoleonic Wars; the American Revolutionary and Civil Wars to World Wars I and II; and from the Korean and Vietnam Wars to modern day conflicts – through the eyes of some of comics’ greatest creators. Through the filter of sequential art, this lush and exciting visual compilation explores the history of global conflict – from the Alamo to Pearl Harbor, from Dunkirk to Iraq and Afghanistan – and features exquisite art from around the world. Includes a foreword by Garth Ennis.
