Overview

FUBAR is your handy dictionary of soldiers' vocabulary and slang from World War I and World War II that has evolved from US, German, and Commonwealth troops.

FUBAR is a detailed survey of the slang of World War II as it was used and evolved by US, German, and Commonwealth fighting men and women. This book lists hundreds of distinctive and evocative slangs, complete with their definitions and origins. FUBAR also includes period accurate cartoons and images that will transport you back through the decades into the world of the WWII warrior.

Humorous, sarcastic, sober, pessimistic, fatalistic, defiant, or defeatist, slang is an important part of every soldier's vocabulary. Whether they're making themselves understood, saving time, or "lightening" the mood with some gallows humor, these words were so ingrained into the soldier's vocabulary that their use was continued by a new generation of soldiers. By the end of the war some terms had even passed into standard everyday usage.
