    In the spring of 1915, a young Austro-Czech naval lieutenant Ottokar Prohaska finds himself posted to the minuscule Imperial and Royal Austro-Hungarian Submarine Service in the Adriatic port of Pola. In some trepidation at first, because he has no experience whatever of submarines, his fears are soon set at rest when he discovers that nobody else has either: least of all his superiors.

    It is the summer of 1916, and young Lieutenant Ottokar Prohaska of the Austro-Hungarian navy once again finds himself aloft in fragile aircraft, this time as an observer-bomber-navigator. Otto's aerial chauffeur is the self-willed Feldpilot-Zugsfuhrer Zoltan Toth, with whom he can only communicate in broken Latin - although when all else fails, screaming will suffice! Toth becomes Otto's steadfast comrade through one peril after another.

    Early in the year 1912, the recently-promoted Lieutenant Ottokar Prohaska finds himself appointed aide-de-camp for aviation to the appalling, boorish, near-insane Austro-Hungarian heir-apparent: the Archduke Franz Ferdinand. With irony, wit, historical accuracy, and telling detail, Biggins brings alive a time and place that spawned two World Wars, the Cold War, and the Balkan wars of the late 20th century.

    • 5 out of 5 stars
