Blurb: 
The humour suffusing the novel - and this is a very funny novel - is particularly evident in the dialogue of the troops and in their various riotous sexual escapades with whores, ponces and gobble-wallahs. It stems from the impulse to show things "as they were" in the Other Ranks in India and Burma during those far-off days of the Forties and of the campaigns against the Japanese, and to recreate it exactly as it was, whether heroic, bawdy or downright bloody unspeakable. The East may be timeless, but the British soldier in India has certainly changed since Kipling"s day. In the second novel concerning Horatio Stubbs, World War II has broken out. Stubbs is serving in the British army in India and Burma. After tussles with whores in India comes the struggle with the Japanese in the jungle. The only novel to describe a soldier"s life in the Forgotten Army". Like its predecessor
