    Notes: First Ed USA, First Printing indicated. Good in Very Good DJ: Both book and DJ show indications of only moderate use, but the book shows waviness and crinckliness along the top edge of the text block due to exposure to dampness, though no dampstains are evident; else only light wear to extremities; slight spine lean; binding remains secure; text clean. DJ shows light wear to extremities; two short, closed tears and a little wrinkling between them at top rear panel; mild rubbing to its sheen; price intact; mylar-protected. Overall, remains clean, sturdy, and reasonably attractive. NOT a Remainder. NOT a Book-Club Edition. NOT an Ex-Library copy. 8vo. 369pp. Hardback with DJ. In 'Sailor of Austria', John Biggins introduced Otto Prohaska, captain of an Austro-Hungarian submarine during the Great War. The tale is told from Prohaska's perspective as a 100-year old resident of a nursing home in rural Wales. Surprised by the interest of a young worker at the home, Prohaska sets about recording his story. This 'looking back' perspective allows a modern sardonic narrative voice somewhat in the manner of Thomas Berger's Little Big Man. The manner of telling is reminiscent of George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman: A Novel (Flashman), as others have remarked, but darker. At times the book is laugh-out-loud funny-particularly early in the book when the dire consequences of a submarine crew fed on rotten cabbage stew leads to a serendipitous result. Biggins gives the reader a convincing sense of life and death aboard the absurdly primitive WW I submarines. As the book moves into the later stages of the war, humor takes a backseat and tragedy takes center stage. Biggins' remarkable description of the disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian Empire puts the reader amidst the shock and utter chaos of a crumbling world. And then the Spanish Flu makes its entrance. Help rescue John Biggins from undeserved obscurity. The writing is really first-rate and so is the story. Highest recommendation.
