In 1973, Japanese cartoonist Shigeru Mizuki published this account of his time in the Japanese army during World War II, a conflict that cost Mizuki many war buddies and his left arm. In Onward, war is exactly as vet advertise: crushing boredom interspersed with sheer terror. Death haunts these men at every moment.
