The Complete McAuslan
From the author of the international bestselling Flashman series, George MacDonald Fraser, come the hilarious stories of the most disastrous soldier in the British Army. Here are the tales of Private McAuslan, J., the "Dirtiest Soldier in the World" (alias the Tartan Caliban, or the Highland Division's answer to the Pekin Man). Fraser first demonstrated McAuslan's unfitness for service in "The General Danced at Dawn." McAuslan continued his disorderly advance through the pages of "McAuslan in the Rough." The final volume, "The Sheikh and the Dustbin," pursues the career of the great incompetent as he shambles across North Africa and Scotland, swinging his right arm in time with his right leg and tripping over his untied laces. Whether map-reading his erratic way through the Sahara by night or confronting Arab rioters, McAuslan's talent for catastrophe is guaranteed. Fraser's talent for entertainment and satire are just as certain.
