Moving graphic novel. Nieport, 31 October 1914. Three soldiers meet in the trenches of World War I, each while fighting for their own and for each others' lives. Raoul Snoeck, Jean-Marie Philippe de Blic and Thomas Ernest Hulme: a Belgian, a Frenchman and an Englishman. Together they beat back the first wave of German attacks along the River Yser. It was the beginning of a friendship that would transcend life and death... The next day, shortly before they have to say goodbye to each other, they decide to meet up again exactly ten years later. Who will appear on 1 November 1924? In other words, who will survive the war? The soldiers were real-life soldiers and the book includes short biographies. Their meeting was invented, in order to create an overarching theme that emphasises the connectedness of all front-line soldiers.

When fourteen-year-old Jack Elliot flees Minnesota after killing a man in a whorehouse, he never expects to find himself in France, hunkered down in a trench as World War I rages around him. Ever resilient, Jack transitions from an ambulance driver at Verdun to become one of the few American volunteers to fly in a French fighter squadron.Jousting with German aces in flimsy wood and canvas "aeroplanes" during the day is hard enough for the inexperienced Jack without the additional pressure of having to match the bacchanalian excesses of his squadron mates at night, all while staying one step ahead of his past. But Jack figures that if he can shoot down five Germans and attain the coveted "Ace" status, all his troubles will be over.Set over the battlefields of Europe and the vast deserts of North Africa, An Ace Minus One is authentic in its depictions of early aviation and the colorful men and women who made this period one of the most exciting in history.

The appearance in July 1915 of the Fokker E I heralded a reign of terror over the Western Front that the Allies called the 'Fokker Scourge'. The French Nieuport 11 was one type desperately thrown into action to counter the Fokkers. The swirling dogfights between this fighter – and its more powerful but more unwieldy stablemate, the Nieuport 16 – and a succession of improved Fokkers, the E II, E III and E IV, came to symbolise air combat in World War I. This book gives a detailed look at the developmental history of the fighters, contrasting the interrupter gear-equipped Fokker with the more improvised solution incorporated in the Nieuport – a machine gun fitted to the upper wing to avoid the propeller entirely. The Germans went on to abandon the monoplane in favour of a new and deadly generation of biplane fighters, based on the lessons learned from these vicious engagements and influenced by the success of the French Nieuport.

When the trainee journalists, Jim and Sophia, are given a new assignment, they explore Waregem in search of inspiration. They quickly become fascinated by the stories of the city during the First World War. Jim and Sophia discover that, although Waregem had been relatively quiet for four years, the liberation left a trail of destruction in its wake. The story of an eleven-year-old boy who, out of childish curiosity, detonated a cannon shell - with dramatic consequences - fills them with horror. They find the diary of a survivor and read about Sergeant Paul Smithhisler, who tried to swim across the River Scheldt after all the bridges had been blown up. Follow in Jim and Sophia's footsteps and reconstruct the last weeks of the First World War in and around Waregem through the experiences of ten soldiers.

Although the Russian Imperial Army Air Service consisted of no more than four BAGs (Boevaya Aviatsionniy Gruppa – battle aviation groups), each controlling three or four smaller AOIs (Aviatsionniy Otryad Istrebitelei – fighter aviation detachments) equipped with a variety of aircraft types, its fighter pilots nevertheless gave a good account of themselves. Indeed, during three years of war they claimed more than 200 Austro-Hungarian and German aircraft shot down, creating 13 aces – these elite aviators accounted for around half of the victories claimed on the Eastern Front. Pilots flew a variety of fighter types, with French Nieuport scouts and SPAD VIIs proving to be the most popular, and effective, aeroplanes to see service on this front. The exploits of these aces are detailed here, with information based on material newly sourced by the author from Russian military and private archives. Many previously unpublished photographs are used to illustrate this book, supported by full-colour profiles that reveal how striking some of the aces' fighters were in this often-forgotten theatre of World War 1.
