Private Angelo, a novel by Eric Linklater( Book )

101 editions published between 1946 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduced by Magnus Linklater. Angelo, a private in Mussolini's 'ever-glorious' Italian army, may possess the virtues of love and an engaging innocence but he lacks the gift of courage. However, due to circumstances beyond his control, he ends up fighting not only for Italy but also for the British and German armies. With his patron the Count, the beautiful Lucrezia, the charming Annunziata, and the delightful Major Telfer, Angelo's fellow characters are drawn with humour, insight and sympathy, making the book a wittily satirical comment on the grossness and waste of war. Eric Linklater, who served with the Black Watch in Italy in World War II, is one of Scotland's most distinguished writers. In Private Angelo he has written a book which demonstrates that honour is not solely the preserve of the brave. 'He writes not only of an angel, but like one ... Private Angelo is now a permanent portrait in the heavenly gallery of human frailty.' Observer 'The drollest medley of muddle and misadventure ... A quite unforgettable group of people take part, none of whom lacks the genuine Linklater stamp ... A high-spirited entertainment which never loses its individual air.' Sunday Times

When an Oxford poet named Saturday Keith assumes control of the Pelican Pub, what he desires most is the peace and freedom to craft his poems without being disturbed.
