Description

This humorous series on the American Civil War centres around two cavalrymen in the Unionist Army: Cornelius Chesterfield, a zealous and devoted sergeant and Corporal Blutch, a reluctant soldier, highly critical of authority and who always tries to eschew yet another senseless battle. This highly comical duo does what it can to escape the often obtuse military mindset, absurd orders and the madness of war. In this volume, the Sergeant obeys the captain for the first time and ends up in the Marines.
