1915, World War I rages in Europe... but it is a war of wizards, dragons, vampires and magic as much as a war of bullets and barbed wire. Join young Fletcher Arrowsmith as he joins up in search of adventure and glory, training to become an airman -- one of the flying wizards that fight in the skies above the trenches. But what Fletcher discovers in the battlegrounds of Gallia is far more, and far worse, than he ever dreamed.

World War One in an alternate universe where the battles are fought on a vast scale but with magical weapons. The story follows Arrowsmith an American flyer (flight is achieved via magic boots) whose unit is based in Paris. The art and writing (plot, character, everything) are BOTH outstanding: complex and richly, richly woven together into a panoramic hell of a war and yet retains so much of the intimate and personal. But it IS a graphic novel so I'll just add that I have never seen a more immersively, believably, visualized magical universe, and the WW1 settings only add to it. And somehow they make it seem so easy, natural, effortless. This is one of the best graphic novels ever in my opinion.
