Life with Fingel is never predictable or dull, as we discover in this collection of hilarious short stories about army life. Simon Raven, who was a regimental officer with the King¿s Own Shropshire Light Infantry, writes with experience and humour. He reports on the adventures and misadventures, deeds and misdeeds, fortunes and misfortunes of the regimental rascal Fingel. We learn of Fingel¿s progress from subaltern to insubstantive colonel. Although Fingel earns no glory, no awards, no commendations he has charm enough to con the brigadiers and colonels¿ wives and to implicate his fellow soldiers in his schemes.
