George MacDonald Fraser beloved for his series of Flashmanhistorical novels offers an action-packed memoir of his experiences inBurma during World War II. Fraser was only 19 when he arrived there inthe war's final year, and he offers a first-hand glimpse at thecamaraderie, danger, and satisfactions of service. A substantialEpilogue, occasioned by the 50th anniversary of VJ-Day in 1995, addspoignancy to a volume that eminent military historian John Keegandescribed as one of the great personal memoirs of the Second WorldWar.
This text recollects life and death in Nine Section, a small group of hard-bitten and possibly eccentric Cumbrian borderers with whom the author, then 19, served in the last great land campaign of World War II.
The acclaimed memoir of life on the front line in Burma during W.W.II, now in a mass market paperback edition. "A brilliantly entertaining read, with all the narrative power, gift for dialogue and surprising twists and turns that would be expected of Flashman's creator" "Financial Times".
