About the book:
Sacco, "the heir to R. Crumb and Art Spiegelman" (Economist), has drawn a monumental, wordless depiction of the most infamous day of World War I: July 1, 1916, the first day of the Battle of the Somme.
THE GREAT WAR is printed on heavyweight accordian-fold paper and packaged in a deluxe hardcover slipcase. The set also includes a 16-page booklet featuring an essay about the first day of the Battle of the Somme by Adam Hochschild and original annotations to the drawing by Sacco himself.
