Sorry, this item is out of stock
Shepard’s War is an intimate, illustrated narrative of the First World War as seen through the mainly unpublished work of E. H. Shepard, who served as a frontline officer from 1915 to the end of the war. With over a hundred pieces of original artwork, ranging from caricatures of Shepard’s fellow officers to sketches made during battle, technical drawings and commentary from Shepard’s own wartime notebooks and diaries, this extra-ordinary collection offers a unique insight into the experiences of a talented artist yet humble man, describing a personal and moving journey through the Great War.

Written by James Campbell.
