The Bluecoats Greenhorn by Raoul Cauvin

Blutch and Chesterfield get away from the 22nd Cavalry and go spend some R&R at - Fort Bow, their old posting on the frontier. 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.


The American Civil War has never been so amusing. Raoul Cauvin and Willy Lambil have a knack for turning the miseries of war into a slapstick routine.A Penny Kenny (
