Other books in the series. For about the first pages or so. I enjoyed what I read, but never I had recently done some reading around WW1 topics, so when I saw svvejk on the shelves I thought it would be a good time to get around to this.

I didn’t manage to finish this. For students of the period or the region there is plenty of interest here. I’m shifting uneasily in my chair just lass about it! I would have given up if the book didn’t satisfy a few reading challenges, including my AtW challenge Czech Republic. I’m glad I read it to the end though, because I enjoyed the last few chapters and the afterword more than the rest of the book.
