3 War Stories gets Five Stars
on January 28, 2014
This book is not an easy read, but I couldn't stop reading it.
The first story is the longest, Its narrated by an old man at the end of two careers: first as a British naval officer and then as a spy. He's been through some dreadful experiences, which he recalls in bits and pieces, not in chronological order, but jumping back and forth in his memory.
The second story is set in the USA during the post civil war, Indian wars. It follows the first in the method of recalling scattered memories of traumatic military service.
The third and shortest story is the shortest and seems somewhat unfinished. In it two Jewish veterans of WWII steal a bomber, intending to deliver it to the infant nation of Israel.
