"The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our time."
-Sir Edward Grey, British Foreign Secretary

The First World War, also known as the Great War, involved over thirty nations and resulted in the deaths of millions of young men.  This stunning new book brings history to life as we see the war through the eyes of the young conscripted servicemen on all sides of the conflict. Introducing the advent of tanks, airplanes, air raids, submarines and gas attacks, we take a close look at the first modern war of the 20th Century. From the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo to the Treaty of Versailles we see for ourselves what life was like in the trenches, on the home front, at sea and in the air. This is more than just a history book; it is a fully illustrated journey into another age.

We follow the fortunes of a group of young conscripts and volunteers to discover what life was really like in the trenches and how they coped with returning home after the horrors of the front line.

In the Battleworld zone of 1872, Sheriff Steve Rogers faces corruption and fear in the boom town of Timely. Can Anthony Stark pull Rogers' fat from the fire? Probably not, since the only thing he seems capable of pulling is a cork from a bottle. Things in Timely are bad, and getting worse — and when a stranger arrives in town, Timely will be changed forever. For anyone left standing when the dust clears, that is. It's a Dead Man's Hand composed of Bullseye, Elektra, Grizzly, Doc Ock and ringleader Wilson Fisk. But what concoction is the timid Dr. Banner cooking up in his apothecary? Will Justice stand tall at high noon, or die in the street? Plus: classic appearances of Will Talltrees, the Marvel Universe's modern Red Wolf!
