Overview

Sergeant Bob Steele catches militaritis. He wants to make retirement, but he is surrounded by crazies at Oddball Squadron and in his personal life. Commander Backtrail wants to get rid of him and the other perverts. Meanwhile, Major Headshrinker, the base psychiatrist, becomes famous by writing papers on them. When Sergeant Bob is tagged for war games, this bad luck interferes with his womanizing and drinking. War games are hell! But when he returns to work, the real battles start. Several characters are delightful! Sergeant Sweet tells the Air Force that he is gay and fights to stay in the service. He won't take it lying down anymore except for special friends. "This is Jim" has never seen Sergeant Bob but wants to kill him. Soon he becomes Brother James to give hell to all of the unrighteous including liberals. Since Airman Hand works for him, Sergeant Bob can't escape his looney theories. When Hand carries an urn that holds his mother's ashes, Oddball Squadron is in a steeper dive. Sergeant Bob tries to win the beautiful Bambi at a Halloween party where Ms. Chipshoulder, an old foe and radical feminist, challenges him to a strip-off This wild come-as-your-real-self costume party is the uproarious climax. Most of the crazies have invitations and clash badly. And Sergeant Bob won't let a biker gang crash the party--so he thinks. The reader's enjoyment comes from the outrageously funny dialogue throughout this offbeat comic masterpiece. [Cover art by Mary Z. Wolf]

Editorial Reviews

Darrell Bain
This book takes a jaundiced look at the Air Force and military. As an old military man myself, I have to say that a lot of it is not far off the mark. All 33 chapters are funny as hell and just about anyone should enjoy reading it.
