George MacDonald Fraser—beloved for his series of Flashman historical novels—offers an action-packed memoir of his experiences in Burma during World War II.  Fraser was only 19 when he arrived there in the war’s final year, and he offers a first-hand glimpse at the camaraderie, danger, and satisfactions of service. A substantial Epilogue, occasioned by the 50th anniversary of VJ-Day in 1995, adds poignancy to a volume that eminent military historian John Keegan described as “one of the great personal memoirs of the Second World War.”

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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…Fraser is unrivaled at the storyteller’s essential crafts.” Financial Times
“Fraser’s is quite the most vividly realistic account of the sharp end of the war in Burma that I have read…If you have enjoyed Fraser’s ‘Flashman’ books you will enjoy the racy, pacy, utterly authentic account of far away long ago soldiering.” London Magazine
“This is a book as good as anything Fraser has written…Decorated with the beautifully-observed dialogue of which he is a master…A moving and penetrating contribution to the literature of the Burma campaign.” Daily Telegraph
