1.0 out of 5 stars Under Fire translation by Wilder Publications, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Under Fire (Paperback)
I have been desperately disappointed by this translation and had to buy a second proper translation (Penguin Modern Classics). This translation reads as if it was carried out by a computer programme and contains some sentences that do not make proper sense in English. Even the text is not justified but hangs left which seems bizarre for a published book.

I am reading the original French text and wanted a good translation to help with the tougher sections containing slang and jargon. This version is not it.
