Author Name    Davidson, Eric.

Title   V FOR SCHWEIK. TEN STORIES OF WORLD WAR II.

Publisher    Warner, (London, 1996).

Seller ID   15723

225 pp, small 8vo (7 3/4" H), soft cover. ISBN: 075151621X "...Eric Davidson's second chapter in the age of Schweik - the era when the ordinary squaddie could, through a bit of earthy judgement and a lot of divine luck, bungle his way through World War II - safe in the knowledge that the enemy would have it own ration of Schweiks, similar common men like himself caught up in forces beyond their making or control. Men for whom war 'like life, was all make-do and mend, try all and error'. 'V for Schweik' celebrates the role of these Schweik-successors in a splendid new selection of tales. Covering the period from D-Day to VE Day, involving the valorous activities of men like Magna Carter, Heavy Wates and Huckleberry Flynn, these ten stories salute the spirit of the legendary Good Soldier with great energy and humour; tales often taller than tall, but always honouring the essential Schweikness of their heroes." Interior - tiny pen correction to typo in foreward, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - tiny soft corner crease. VG+
