I would like to thank the author, publishers and Netgalley for allowing me to pick this to read and review all my reviews are honest.
Maxwell Fox didn’t know what he would witness in France. America had only been in the Great War since April 2, 1917. Nothing could have prepared him for the horrors that awaited him and the rest of the men of the 4th Infantry “Ivy” Division. As the Meuse-Argonne Offensive raged on, Maxwell became assigned to a unit of stretcher bearers, men who were tasked with running into harm’s way to rescue their fallen brethren from the clutches of death. This wouldn’t be an easy job, but with Graham, Frank, and Ralph by his side, Maxwell had to rely on his team and hope to survive. A dark and honest look at the bond of brotherhood during war, The Stretcher Bearers tells the unforgettable tale of a young soldier trying to save the lives of wounded soldiers and keep the men he’d formed a bond with alive. But in the “war to end all wars,” no one was safe
This is an excellent graphic novel. I loved it from the very start. I actually felt quite emotional while reading it. It had a fantastic sense of atmosphere and tension. I became so engrossed in it that I couldn't put it. I just had to read it all in one sitting. I thought the story line and pictures were stunning. If I am honest this novel only didn't get 5 stars because I would of loved to see more colours in the pictures. The pictures were amazing and it beautiful detail. I would recommend this for ages 16+ as there are a couple of curse words. But as an adult I absolutely loved it. I will definitely be looking out for more from the author and publishers.
So much praise goes out to the authors and publishing team for producing this spectacular action and emotion filled graphic novel.
