Colin MacInnes was a sergeant in a Field Security detachment in the Second World War. In this imaginative record of actual experiences, he describes the progress of his detachment through Holland, Germany and Belgium in a rapid succession of incidents, full of humanity, light-heartedness and wit. But it is a great deal more than just a fascinating account of the war; written in the 1950s, it was a sufficient distance away for the war experience to have been digested, yet close enough for it to be fresh. Running through the seemingly gentle stories, he tells undercurrents of emotion which are moving, disturbing and deeply poignant.
