This may be something to do with Moore's alter ego, a certain Captain Cartwright, the purported collector of the trench lingo in 'Roger, Sausage & Whippet'. Cartwright's story, as narrated in his letters home, seems entirely plausible and, where it touches on real events, historically accurate. I got totally involved with him as a character and was mightily relieved when he survived the battle of the Somme. Perhaps he's been spared for another outing?
Well worth reading.

Note: Amazon listed this book among Christopher Moore's famously funny novels. It is by a different Christopher Moore and it is not a novel.
