A very simple, but complete drawn version of WW1

Causes of World War One

Yesterday I found this comic version of World War One, drawn by Angus McLeod. It explains everything about the Great War: the outbreak, the stages, the main battles and the end of war. Click on the link to read it:

Hi Paqui, I've read the comic and I think it is very complete and as it is funny it's easier to learn about it. It's curious that in that times they used to use the normal topics of every country to make humor.
Bye Have a good holidays.

Hello Alejandro,

This comic strip was not drawn during WW1. It´s recent. Angus McLeod is a contemporary artist. He drew this strip in 2009. I´ve left a comment on his website. If you want, you can do the same.

On the other hand, there were very good cartoonists since the second half of the 19th century. I love to suf on Punch and other websites to look for cartoons which explained events from their point of view. They were very creative and they used a lot of symbols for countries and monarchs or rulers. I like them a lot.
