    They say Black Dow has killed more men than winter and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls. The King of the Union, ever a jealous neighbor, is not about to stand by smiling while Black Dow claws his way any higher. The orders have been given, and the armies are toiling through the northern mud. Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they've brought a lot of sharpened metal with them.

    "Dark Humour - The Absurdities of War and Politics"

    Story

    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.
