While out on patrol, Blutch and Chesterfield encounter an unusual soldier: a woman wearing a Union uniform, who has come to join the army to look for her brother and uphold the family’s honour. Blutch is unconvinced, but the sergeant, won over by the combination of bravery and a pretty face, agrees to help her. That, however, means taking her along for Captain Stark’s demented charges – a prospect that could drive anyone to shirk their duty or desert…

More battle scenes (brings a tear to a gamer's eyes!) and lots and lots of mud.  Who could have guessed that the US Civil War was such fun (the English civil war was a much dourer and serious an event) ?  And the youngsters can read this because there is no blood or gore....I think that just lost the young readers!

Great fun.
