9780393088809: The Great War: July 1, 1916: The First Day of the Battle of the Somme

From “the heir to R. Crumb and Art Spiegelman” (Economist) comes a monumental, wordless depiction of the most infamous day of World War I.

Launched on July 1, 1916, the Battle of the Somme has come to epitomize the madness of the First World War. Almost 20,000 British soldiers were killed and another 40,000 were wounded that first day, and there were more than one million casualties by the time the offensive halted. In The Great War, acclaimed cartoon journalist Joe Sacco depicts the events of that day in an extraordinary, 24-foot- long panorama: from General Douglas Haig and the massive artillery positions behind the trench lines to the legions of soldiers going “over the top” and getting cut down in no-man’s-land, to the tens of thousands of wounded soldiers retreating and the dead being buried en masse. Printed on fine accordion-fold paper and packaged in a deluxe slipcase with a 16-page booklet, The Great War is a landmark in Sacco’s illustrious career and allows us to see the War to End All Wars as we’ve never seen it before.

About the Author :

Joe Sacco's acclaimed books include Palestine, Safe Area Gorazde, and Footnotes in Gaza, as well as a best-selling collaboration with Chris Hedges, Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

From Booklist :

*Starred Review* What photos exist of WWI tend to be claustrophobic and grainy, which makes Sacco’s epic panorama feel all the more revelatory. Illustrated across a single, wordless 24-foot-long accordion-fold page, Sacco details—and detail is the right word—the situation on July 1, 1916, as British troops meet the Germans at the Battle of the Somme in France. Paged through like a book, it breaks into 12 double-page spreads of astonishingly deep focus, as we follow, from a three-quarter overhead angle, the progression of British forces rightward (that is, eastward), from horseback generals and their comfortable châteaus to chow lines bothered by just a hint of distant frontline smoke; from the labyrinth of trenches to the vortex of shell explosions and the resultant gore; and, at last, from the medic station, featuring new trenches—graves—to the ominous sight of incoming reinforcements. Unfurled, this condensed picture of the western front is one of staggering grandeur and inescapable doom: those lean-faced soldiers at the far left have no idea of the meat grinder that awaits. A separate 16-page booklet provides invaluable annotations as well as Hochschild’s fine essay on this disastrous day of battle. Though the format is a bit treacherous for library collections, this is on par with Jacques Tardi’s unforgettable graphic works It Was the War of the Trenches (2010) and Goddamn This War! (2013). --Daniel Kraus
