An illustrated science-history graphic novel exploring parallel experiences during WWI.

The story takes place on two different physical scales - the macro-scale, from the point of view of a Victorian nurse supporting troops in the trenches of the Western Front - and simultaneously on the micro-level, from the point of view of the gut microbes which fight to keep her body alive when she contracts dysentery.

This fictional story is based on accurate scientific and historical facts, in consultation with academic experts from Australia, France, the UK and the USA.
