"The Bluecoats" is a humorous comic-book series starring Sergeant Chesterfield and Corporal Blutch, soldiers in the Union army during the Civil War. Our two heroes are captured by the Confederates and taken to Robertsonville prison camp, from which Blutch and the Sergeant try to escape five times. The camp commandant despairs, and Chesterfield and Blutch make a final attempt. "Robertsonville Prison" was inspired by the Andersonville prison camp situated in Georgia, which operated from mid-1863 to mid-1864.

Author Biography - Raoul Cauvin
In 1969, Cauvin and Salve created "The Bluecoats," Cauvin's first successful series. He excelled in humorous adventures for all ages and with all kinds of visual gags. He exercised his gift by writing around 15 albums a year for parallel series with guaranteed success. In 1972, following the premature death of Salve, Cauvin asked Lambil, illustrator of Spirou magazine, to continue the series. From then on, Lambil dedicated himself to these heroes and drew 47 albums over 35 years.
