This is another graphic novel for kids. It is written by Scott Chantler. The pictures are breathtaking. They send the reader the message that is very much explicit in the tone and subject matter of the book.
This is a historical graphic novel. It is about the second world war and how hard it was during those times. It is important for kids of all ages to realize how lucky we all are that so many have fought for our wonderful country.
In March of 1943, Scott Chantler’s grandfather, Law Chantler, shipped out across the Atlantic to serve with the Highland Light Infantry of Canada along with his best friend Jack, a fellow officer.
Not long afterward, they would find themselves making a rocky crossing of the English Chanel, about to take part of one of the most pivotal and treacherous military operations of World War II: the Allied invasion of Normandy.
The story is told through the eyes of everyday heroes, Two Generals is a story about friendship, and the tragedies and absurdities of war.
I loved this book and it was educational and empowering too. It is a must-read for all kids, and I think all Canadians.
