Charley's war was that the one set in WW1 ?

Also does anyone remember the other war comic around the late 70's early 80's "Warlord"

Charley's war was the gonads, wish I had kept the annuals now :roll:

Check out the stuff on BBC website they had a very interesting series on Battle ect. BBC 4

Apparently Charley's war was a idea linked to the girl's comic's trend of more realistic downbeat storylines! 8O

"Battle was started in 1976, and it was here that Mills was first able to convey the true horrors of combat. He plunged young readers into the trenches of WWI as seen through the eyes, and the letters to and from home, of a boy much like themselves: an underage, working-class Cockney recruit named Charley Bourne. Grounded in research and brilliantly illustrated by Joe Colquhoun, Charley's War was unprecedented in deglamourising and humanising the war genre and heralded further changes and controversies to come as comics continued to change with the times.
