Quartered Safe Out Here : A Harrowing Tale of World War II
by George MacDonald Fraser




Overview -
George MacDonald Fraser--beloved for his series of Flashman historical novels--offers an action-packed memoir of his experiences in Burma fighting the Japanese during World War II. An excellent popular historian. --Time Magazine

In this rattling-good memoir, novelist, historian, and screenwriter Fraser vividly recounts the nerve-racking frontline action he saw while serving as a nineteen-year-old soldier during what turned out to be the last great land campaign of World War II--the British army's ferocious campaign against the Japanese in Burma. The realism of his story, combined with the skills of a talented novelist, create a book of sentiment and excitement. This is unforgettable reading, both for fans of Fraser's novels and for anyone interested in one of the great battles of World War II.

Fraser offers a firsthand glimpse at the camaraderie, danger, and satisfactions of service. A substantial epilogue, occasioned by the fiftieth anniversary of V-J Day in 1995, adds poignancy to a volume that eminent military historian John Keegan described as "one of the great personal memoirs of the Second World War."
