Do you like the "Flashman" books by George Macdonald Fraser? The "Sharpe" books by Bernard Cornwell? The unflinching portrayal of combat and war in movies such as "Platoon"? Then this book is for you.
The absurdities of the functioning of large armies. The politics of conflict. The personal pettiness that affect both. I found myself laughing out loud many times at the internal monologues of hard-done-by Bremer dan Gorst, hard-bitten Corporal Tunney, and war-weary Curndon Craw.
Joe Abercrombie's dry/black humour is masterfully narrated by Michael Page as he captures the voice and sentiment of each point-of-view character.
