‘Suddenly they all seemed to be tackled at once. The whole line went down. Earth and sky turned over, and Will found himself in shell hole staring at the sky. Then everything went black.’

Watercolour on paper by Michael Foreman, 1993.

This illustration is taken from the book 'War Game', written and illustrated by Michael Foreman. The book tells the story of four boys who after joining up to fight in the First World War, are sent to the Western Front in 1914. The story follows their experiences of life in the trenches, dealing with gunfire, death and the Christmas Truce.
