Quartered Safe Out Here: A Harrowing Tale of World War II
Quartered Safe Out Here: A Harrowing Tale of World War II (Paperback)
On Our Shelves (as of this morning)
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."
