In the final volume of this intergenerational memoir, a powerful tribute to a lost generation of WWII POWs, the author’s father comes home.

In the third and final volume of Stalag IIB, René Tardi has come home. But after five agonizing years as a prisoner of war, he is a changed man. Like millions of other French soldiers, René struggles to adjust to civilian life and imagine his postwar future. Upon re-enlisting in the army he despises, René receives new orders: return to Germany and help rebuild the country that imprisoned him. There, the story shifts from father to son, as young Jacques must bear the strange burden of growing up in the land of his father’s enemy. A solitary child, he takes refuge in drawing, kickstarting a lifelong passion for cartooning. This volume brings to a close a fitting tribute to the artist’s father and the lost generation of French POWs ―  the triumphant culmination of Jacques Tardi as a master of the form. Two-color illustrations.

"This intensely personal work is one of Tardi's best and most accessible―uncompromising in its portrayal of war yet relatable as a story of a son trying to understand his father." ― Publishers Weekly
