Achtung Schweinehund!

I have just finished reading this very funny account of wargaming in the 1960's and 70's for the second time and it has lost none of its very cutting humour. I would recommend it to anyone of my vintage - born in 1959!

The book is written by Harry Pearson and has been available via discount book stores in the UK.

"A brilliantly funny and nostalgic look at 1960s and 70s childhood as well as a more serious examination of boy's (and some men's) obsession with war."

It is rare for me to laugh out loud while reading a book (Terry Pratchett is an exception), but this book had me laughing out loud and smiling all the way through!
