Yesterday’s post about Joe Sacco inspired me for this post and the next ones, which will be dedicated to Comics and the Great War. I had presented some time ago Charley’s War ; here is now one of the few examples of Italian comics I know: La Grande Guerra – Storia di nessuno, written by Alessandro di Virgilio and Davide Pascutti. The book was published by Becco Giallo in 2008, but the book can be found again this year in bookshops, because WW1 is much more trendy now!
The story is rather classical and mixes modern times and the Great War events. The book is completed by excerpt of war diaries of letters sent by soldiers. A bibliography is included too.
