Few contemporaries captured Britain’s indomitable wartime spirit as well or as wittily as the cartoonist Carl Giles. Now, for the first time, the very best of the cartoons he produced between 1939 and 1945 are brought together, including many that have not seen the light of day in over 75 years. As a young cartoonist at Reynold’s News and then the Daily Express, Giles's work provided a crucial morale boost – and much-needed laughs – to a population suffering daily privations and danger, and Giles's War shows why. Here are his often hilarious takes on the great events of the war – from the Fall of France, via D-Day, to the final Allied victory – but also his wryly amusing depictions of ordinary people in extraordinary times, living in bombed-out streets, dealing with food shortages, coping with blackouts, railing against bureaucracy and everyday annoyances. It's a brilliantly funny chronicle of our nation’s finest hour, as well as a fitting tribute to one of our greatest cartoonists.

"Every human alive should read this book." --James Dashner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner When their worlds collide, X and Zoe are pushed to the edge of everything in this tour de force from Entertainment Weekly veteran Jeff Giles. For the perfect love, what would you be willing to lose? It's been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who's still reeling from her father's shocking death in a caving accident and her neighbors' mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying subzero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in the woods--only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X. X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe's evil attacker and others like him. X is forbidden from revealing himself to anyone other than his prey, but he casts aside the Lowlands' rules for Zoe. As they learn more about their colliding worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for them both. Gripping and full of heart, this epic start to a new series will bring readers right to the edge of everything. "Utterly original. Beautifully written. At turns poignant and funny, the story of Zoe and her fight to save her family and the strange young man known only as 'X' will stay with you long after you finish this extraordinary book." --Peter Jackson, Oscar-winning director of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies "Utterly fantastic. Dark, funny, exciting, a unique clashing of worlds. Every human alive should read this book." --James Dashner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner "A fresh and addictive read that grabbed me from the first page and still hasn't let me go. Jeff Giles led me into the darkness--ultimately reminding me why we should never stop searching for the light." --Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures and author of The Lovely Reckless "Sharp, dark, thoughtful and romantic, readers will thrill to the start of this exciting new series." --Cassandra Clare, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Mortal Instruments series "A dark and suspenseful supernatural thriller that kept me up all night." --Melissa de la Cruz, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Isle of the Lost
