This very realistic war novel has its fair share of the inexplicable, the magical, the bizarre, and the plain weird. What is reality, after all?
A somewhat crazy veteran Parachute Regiment NCO thinks he is a god-of-sorts, as he discovers that he is able to store the entire lives of other people (and animals, plants and rocks) in his mind and play them back at will. The fact is that he may be right, he may be some kind of a god after all. There may well be other lesser gods just like him out there. Or not.
"That Forgotten Little War" appears to be a collection of short stories, but it's not. The story is about a war, but the war is not the main issue here. The main issue is Reality, its inner structure, its secret works, its unfathomable meanings.
Brilliant, colourful characters and heart wrenching conflicts intertwine throughout the book to come together at the end in a way that no-one would ever imagine.
This is not the typical book for fans of war stories, although they will enjoy the absolute accuracy and detail of events that take place in war. It is mostly for those who question reality and perceive the holes in its apparently perfect fabric.
It is the most gripping and unusual story of a war ever written.
