Catel et Bocquet retracent le destin de la fascinante Joséphine Baker dans un magnifique roman (bio)graphique tout en noir et blanc. En 500 pages, les auteurs nous dévoilent toutes les facettes de cette femme emplie de convictions : muse de nombreux artistes, militante contre la ségrégation raciale, agent du contre-espionnage de la France Libre, mère adoptive d’une douzaine d’enfants venus d’horizons divers… elle était décidément bien plus qu’une danseuse de cabaret affublée d’une ceinture de bananes...
Since the Normandy landings, the Allied forces continued to grow, repelling the Germans further and further. But in September 1944, Hitler saw an opportunity to direct a counter-attack. His plan was simple: targeting the poorly-defended Belgian Ardennes to seize the port of Antwerp and divide the opposing army. Therefore, on 16th December, at around 5:30am, the attack was orchestrated and one of the most important battles of World War II took place.
