A Deserter’s Tale

Battle‘s acclaimed Charley’s War continues at Titan Books with the timely release of a fourth collection of the World War One tale.

Written by Pat Mills, drawn by the legendary Joe Colquhoun, Blue’s Story continues the critically-acclaimed thrilling, horrifying and blackly comic story of World War One soldier Charley Bourne.

Home from the war thanks to an injury, Charley escapes from a terrifying air-raid, only to run into a deserter from the Foreign Legion – who tells him of the awful siege of Fort Vaux, even as both men run for their lives from the Military Police.

Rich in the detailed minutiae of the terror-punctuated existence of a Tommy, this fourth volume features a brand new introduction by Whitbread prize nominee Tariq Goddard, commentary by Pat Mills, plus an exclusive bonus feature on the Battle of Verdun.

The book is out now in the US ($19.95) and the UK (£14.99).
