    A new recruit makes the mistake of asking Blutch to tell him about
    the infamous battle of Bull Run ... in public! The hostility of the
    other Union soldiers is immediate, yet Blutch eventually explains the
    reason for it. That battle, the first major one of the war, which had
    seemed to the North like such an inevitable victory that masses of
    civilians had gone to watch it as spectators, ended in a complete
    rout. And Blutch and Chesterfield were there ...

    Childhood is a time to learn about life. We discover love, but also
    such things as disease and death. We learn to share and be generous,
    but we also learn about the dangers of excesses, greed and gluttony.
    In other words, every day is a new adventure - especially when, like
    Cedric, you have a somewhat clumsy father, a grumpy but loveable
    grandfather ... and a strong-willed almost-girlfriend with an
    occasionally volatile temper!

When one sends saboteurs to intercept the powder needed to pierce tunnels through the mountains, the other calls upon Lucky Luke to protect a last chance convoy. The problem is, it's not powder that gets loaded onto the train this time - it's nitroglycerin! And as if that wasn't enough, the saboteurs are still around ... and the Daltons are convinced the train is full of gold!

  • Stark's constant, reckless charging has once again depleted the 22nd
    Cavalry. Faced with an understandable dearth of volunteers, the
    Army's brass drafts - without telling them - some freshly arrived
    immigrants. And Blutch and Chesterfield are tasked with instructing
    them in the art of riding down the enemy. But there's a problem: the

    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...

Blutch is unconvinced, but the sergeant, won over by the combination of bravery and a pretty face, agrees to help her. That, however, means taking her along for Captain Stark's demented charges - a prospect that could drive anyone to shirk their duty or desert...

But that safety is relative: stuck between Apache bandits and Mexican outlaws, our two Bluecoats have no choice but to disguise themselves as civilians - Blutch as a peasant, Chesterfield as a monk.

    After another long day of charging, Blutch and Chesterfield make the acquaintance of Matthew Brady, a professional photographer dispatched by President Lincoln to document the ongoing historic struggle. Photography, still a new invention, together with Brady's talent for capturing the moment, are met with great enthusiasm by both the rank and file and the top brass. Inevitably, it's not long before Blutch and Chesterfield are ordered to act as the artist's protective detail - much to the sergeant's disgust...

  • War rages on, and the wounded pile up - including Blutch, courtesy of
    Confederate artillery. The Union Army doctors are swamped. In order
    to address his shortage of healers, General Alexander brings in a
    quartet of female nurses. But while he did also recruit a foul-
    tempered `matron' of sorts to discourage anyone more interested in
    flirting than doing their duty, he may not have planned for the
    possibility of one of the nurses falling for a certain small, unruly,
    bald corporal ...

    - between the reputation of their unit and Blutch's constant sabotage
    efforts, finding volunteers is almost impossible. Until fate brings
    them to a penitentiary where some very unsavoury characters are about
    to hang. Offered a choice, the criminals will pick the uniform over

That's where Chesterfield's flame Amelia lives-the daughter of Colonel Appleton. But when the cavalrymen arrive, they find the young lady dancing with a dashing young lieutenant. When a young Native American boy gets mixed up in it by mistake, it doesn't take long for the situation to spiral out of control.
