Line of Fire by Barroux (group set, 7 books)

£61 Save £15.93

One winter's morning, illustrator Barroux was walking down a street in Paris when he made an extraordinary discovery: the diary of a soldier in the First World War. Barroux rescued the diary from the rubbish heap, took the diary back to his studio and subsequently illustrated the soldier's words.

The result is a striking graphic novel adaptation of the soldier's moving and powerful account of war. The diary was discovered along with a medal and a song lyrics in the back of the diary that continue until 1917. But there is no name in the diary - the name on the cover has long faded. He remains the unknown soldier.
