In October 1918, Private Maxwell is running from a bomb during World War I. In flashbacks, it is shown how Maxwell got there as one of The Stretcher Bearers in the Battle of the Meuse-Argonne.
The book puts the reader directly in the action as a stretcher bearer in WWI. It shows the painful aspects of war including shell shock (aka post-traumatic stress disorder) and the randomness of war’s victims. The color work is all in teal reflecting the grimness of the location.
If you enjoy WWI stories, you should enjoy The Stretcher Bearers. 3 stars.
Thanks to Dead Reckoning and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
