The Return of Gunner Asch

£15.00

Product description

This first edition with sleeve is the third book which tells the amusing story of Gunner Asch in World War II. In this volume the power of the German military machine is broken at last and the Allies are pouring into the country. 'Lumpface' Luschke is anxious to avoid useless loss of life and orders his units to disband and go home. But there are still fanatical Nazi officers who order hopeless resistance to American tanks in order to ensure their own escape. Gunner Asch, now a Lieutenant, and his companions are hunting such a Nazi fanatic when they reach a little provincial town in which old Asch has his cafe. It is a scene of indescribable confusion as the Americans advance, the Nazis go underground, the opportunists cash in on profitable and ingenious rackets and Sergeant-Major Schulz now a Captain, misinterprets very order he is given. But Herbert Asch remains his cheerful, wily and resourceful self amidst the chaos around him. And he watches the collapse of the Army he has served for so long with evident relish as he looks forward to his own escape from the trials of military life.
