This powerful collection, depicting the events of the Great War at sea, showcases the work of the contemporary combat artists and illustrators from the Great War era. The result is a stunning and vivid graphic record of life and death on the high-seas from 1914-18, as reported to contemporary audiences at a time when the events of the Great War were still unfolding.

During the Great War artists and illustrators produced a highly accurate visual record of the fleeting moments the bulky cameras couldn't reproduce. These works form a body of war reportage that are as valid as the written word. Today, the work of the combat illustrators and the official war artists from the Great War era is overlooked by historians in favour of photographs, but these illustrations are nonetheless important, as they provide a contemporary record of hand-to-hand fighting, trench raids, aerial dogfights, sea battles, desperate last stands, night actions and cavalry charges.

An impressive visual file.

José Manuél Rico Cortés (Mister JM) - Miniaturas JM

Few photographs were taken during many naval actions and, when they were, it took a very long time before any appeared in the newspapers.

As a result, the press relied instead on contemporary combat illustrators and official war artists to produce the images which would both inform the public and, perhaps more importantly for them, sell their papers. This book showcases the work of those artists and provides a stunning and vivid graphic record of life and death on the high seas.
