The Good Soldier Svejk: And His Fortunes in the World War

by Jaroslav Hasek - £10.99  Penguin Books Ltd (Penguin Classics) (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780140449914 | ISBN 10: 0140449914

Hasek's most important work was centered around the deeply funny story of a hapless Czech soldier in the Austro-Hungarian army -- dismissed for incompetence only to be pressed into service by the Russians in World War I (where he is captured by his own troops).
 
A mischief-maker, bohemian and drunk, Hasek demonstrated his wit in this classic novel of the Czech character and preposterous nature of war.
