Memoir of the Bobotes

By Joyce Cary

Memoir of the Bobotes is an extraordinarily vivid account of a forgotten war, fought by peasants under primitive conditions and perhaps a precursor for Balkan wars of more recent memory.

This literary tour de force is both a moving account of war and a touching portrait of the naivety of youth, originally written as a journal of the author’s own experience – Cary was a Red Cross stretcher-bearer and cook in the Balkan War of 1912 to 1913.

From one of the greatest writers of the twentieth-century, Memoir of the Bobotes is a beautiful classic of British and Irish literature.
