I'm Ukrainian. The war came to my country veiled in April and became open in summer. The best people of my country volunteered to protect their land from the Russian aggressors and are now dying some 200 km from my home town. I came across this wonderful drawing in the social network. It was used in the post about the tragic death of a Ukrainian soldier. It was accompanied by the inscription "The Earth has become one soul poorer. The heavens have become one star richer". I recognized it was the Great War in the picture and I wanted to thank the author on behalf of the Ukrainian patriots for the accuracy in expressing the emotions and for encouraging us by this image. Because war is always war and death is always death: these terrible notions have no time or space limits.

"No, madam-he did not die alone-he was surrounded by his comrades, and they all swore that they saw an angel take him up to heaven-after he'd died fighting to the last bullet, to the last drop of blood, to the last breath. I'd be proud to call him my son, madam."

My version of how the Sergeant answered the question the lad's mother asked.

Sad and touching at the same time. the British did not suffer the same losses such as the French or Germans, but the cost was still high. Good job.

Wow. Just wow.

Quite possibly one of the most beautiful pieces of artwork. It's heartbreaking, and yet warming at the same time.

The details are just PHENOMENAL; from all his clothing and hers, to their features, to even the can and barbed wire, they are stunning. Their positioning is awesome too, it's very realistic.

Much of my family is or was in the military, and some didn't make it back; so it's really incredible to think that they weren't alone. I'll admit that this brought a tear to my eye because it is such a powerful image. Thank you for this unique contribution.

I admire the details you put in it (even in the background and around the soldier), and the feeling of it all...
