Sir Arthur Benton is a British citizen. However, he chose the wrong side: that of accepting the Nazi ideology. After Hitler surrendered in 1945, a prisoner of the Allies in Nuremberg, this enigmatic character only agreed to speak to his worst enemy: Colonel de la Taille, a member of the Second French Bureau and who had been tracking him since the beginning of a war that started in 1929 in Istanbul. Based on a well-documented scenario by TAREK and talented in drawings (and color) by Stéphane PERGER, Sir Arhur Benton is a psychological and suspense trilogy that plunges us into a war waged in the shadows by the Allied and German secret services.
From London to Istanbul, from Paris to Berlin, meeting countless historical figures, the pretenses and manipulations will keep you going until the last page. Note also that each album has some additional very interesting bibliographical pages on the historical characters encountered throughout this comic as well as on the major events that took place during this period.
