A New Kind of War - Anthony Price

Victor Gollancz, 1987, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ. Lightly bruised at top leading corners.

From the cover: “There was no Christmas Day, 1944, for the British Army in liberated Athens: General Scobie postponed it to enable his men to concentrate on defeating their former allies, the Greek communists. So it wasn’t until well into the New Year’s truce that Captain Frederick Fattorini, of the Royal Engineers set out to celebrate “Scobiemas” with his friend. Yet even then their trip to Delphi was spoilt when they blundered into Lieutenant David Audley engaged in unashamed truce-breaking on the orders of his Brigadier on the ridge above an ancient monastery. And it was that cruel accident — or was it an accident — that eventually brought Captain Fattorini to Occupied Germany as the newest and most bemused member of TRR-2. Ostensibly TRR-2 is searching advanced German technology, the only truly worthwhile legitimate loot remaining in that ruined country. But actually apart from its eccentric commander’s obsession with the massacre of the Roman army in the Teutoburg Forest in AD9 — TRR-2 still seems to be up to its old Greek game”
