In War, It Always Comes Down to Stupidity

Abby Zimet


For historians of the fascinating, pitiless, pointless "war to end
all wars" that, as it turned out, wasn't, comes French cartoonist
Jacques Tardi's pithy graphic
, It Was The War of the Trenches. Reminding us that
profoundly stupid wars are nothing new, Tardi focuses on the muddy,
freezing, flooded, rat-filled trenches that constituted daily life for
millions during World War One's four bloody years.
