5.0 out of 5 stars Quatered Safe Out Here, 29 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quartered Safe Out Here (Paperback)
my introduction to George MacDonald Fraser was by a friend who reccomended to me
'The Complete MacAuslan' Short stories about a highland regiment shortly after the war, which totally enchanted me and has become my favourite book of all time which I have read time after time. Therefore I looked forward To 'Quatered Safe Out Here' though wondering Would he be able to inject that magical humour into his memoir of a young and concientious infantry private fighting in this dreadful war against a bestial enemy. Thankfully he did, and thus portrayed the british soldier as we know him to be, competent, no nonsense and always with a sense of humour, whatever the situation.

He surmonises somewhat towards the end of the book about the bombing of Japan and the over emotional society of today. I am of the generation following George and agree with him on all the points he puts forward. To hell with being politically correct, tell it like it is as George does.

A rattling good read.
