Finished: It Was the War of the Trenches by Jacques Tardi, 2010, 9781606993538.
Comic book short stories by Frenchman. Tardi's grandfather would tell stories of the war. Tardi tells everything from the Frog point of view. Republished form the French. Tardi's foreword is from 1994.
Tardi illustrates how everything would turn into mud. A few million tons of high explosives shells will pulverize, damn near atomize, anything. Lots of Lebels.
