Book Description

22 May 1997
Set in the not-too-distant past, this comic and exuberantly lustful tale by the author of "The Miracle Game" is also a savage parody of life under foreign occupation. The conscripts of a Czech battalion prepare themselves for inevitable war with the US - using unconventional tactics.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best books to come out of central europe 25 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on
The humor in this book is only exceeded by the biting commentary found throughout the text. This is a must read for anyone forced to endure conscription into any army in the world (and there are all kinds of those).
5.0 out of 5 stars a must read...!! 1 Dec 2012

This book is just classics! For anyone who wants to know how iron curtain armies really worked...
(btw: there is a movie as well... the movie is really funny). People not living in that era might not get all jokes and allusions... but even without that the book is just great.
