Do you like a good story? Can you read? Then you owe it to yourself to get a copy of “A Sailor of Austria” by John Biggins.
It’s the fictional story of an Austrian U-Boat commander during WWI. I didn’t know Austria-Hungary had a navy. I didn’t know that the Austro-Hungarian Navy had U-Boats. And I had no idea what the end of the war looked like from their perspective. It’s a rare book of fiction that leaves you thinking you know a bit more about the world after you’ve read it.
I have no idea who recommended it, but thanks. Pick it up on Amazon. I can’t think of any higher praise for a book than to recommend that you buy it. Anyone who writes a story like that should get paid.
