Line of Fire: Diary of an Unknown Soldier

£10.99   paperback  Phoenix Yard Books (2014)

Line of Fire: Diary of an Unknown Soldier by Barroux (illustrator), translated by Sarah Ardizzone A remarkable find in a rubbish heap...

"We need the voice of a witness to tell the adulterated truth. We have it in this remarkable book."
(Michael Morpurgo)
One winter's morning, Barroux was walking down a street in Paris when he made an incredible discovery: the diary of a soldier in the First World War.
Barroux rescued the diary from a rubbish heap and illustrated the soldier’s words. We have no idea who the soldier is or what became of him. We just have his words; and in his own words and Barroux's extraordinary pictures, this is his story.
In this striking graphic novel adaptation of a 100-year-old diary, the events of the first two months of WWI are told through the eyes of the unknown soldier. This is living history in the form of one man's story silhouetted against the historical events of 1914 that formed and transformed the world we live in today.
With an introduction to the book by renowned children's author Michael Morpurgo, and cross curricular teaching resources available to all schools upon publication, Line of Fire is a must-read for anyone looking for a personal account of the First World War.
