or rather I had them until they were seized by the British authorities along with all my other possessions last May We shall now fight to get them. It is almost 100 years since John Masters 1914 1983 was born in Calcutta India His ancestry included both European and Indian roots and a recent book on the Anglo Indians “The Anglo Indians a 500 year history” by Muthiah and MacLure confirms this Indeed his novel “Bhowani Junction” is based on the lives of Anglo Indians in India as the country approached independence After a distinguished military career in the British Indian armed forces which included active service during WW2 he began publishing novels I discovered my tatty paperback version of “The Field Marshall’s Memoirs” in the crowded shelves of Blossoms Book Stall in Bangalore India I was attracted to it because the blurb on its cover alluded to the story being related to a military campaign in the Balkans during WW2 As I am fascinated by the Balkans I purchased the book and began reading itAbout 30 years after the end of WW2 the Field Marshall decides to write his memoirs of his activities during WW2 particularly the campaign that he won in Yugoslavia at an unlikely named place called ‘Vojja Lovac’ there is a place in Montenegro called ‘Voja Lovac’; maybe this is what the author meant The Field Marshall decides that in his memoirs everything will be revealed regardless of how damaging it may be to those mentioned in them who are still alive A newspaper learns that he is beginning to write these no holds barred memoirs and offers to serialise them when they are finished This paper publishes advance notices about the forthcoming publication and this is when troubles begin The Field Marshall knows much that might well harm the reputations of prominent people both in the UK and the USA He and his family begin receiving threats from all uarters including the UK government None of these deter the Field Marshall and those who are helping him including his feisty granddaughter Caroline As the Field Marshall researches his memoirs and surprising revelations appear at a remarkable rate the mafia and the London underworld become involved It is impossible to know where the author of the novel is leading us until the slightly disappointing last few pagesThis story unfolds at a spanking pace There is hardly a page on which some surprising twist in the plot is not introduced The story telling in this book is almost as good as that of John Buchan I read most of the book during short journeys between home and work but would have probably raced through it in a few hours had I read it in bed It is ‘unput downable’Masters does not appear to be sympathetic to most of his ‘upper class’ protagonists in this novel and made me dislike them Oddly enough he did the same for the majority of the Anglo Indians who he portrayed in “Bhowani Junction” the only other book by Masters that I have read The author describes much material related to the military in an easily comprehensible way This is no doubt because of his considerable experience in the army and the battlefield I picked up the “Field Marshall’s Memoirs” attracted by the promise of some Balkan content but was disappointed It would seem to me from reading this novel that Masters was not overly familiar with the region and his brief biography on ‘Wikipedia’ suggests that he did not see active service in that part of the world Although this saddened me a little it certainly did not detract from a fascinating and exciting readReviewed by author of SCRABBLE WITH SLIVOVITZ a book about the last years of Yugoslavia I picked this book up mainly because I admire the writer but I did not have high expectations However I was pleasantly surprised to find the book an entertaining interesting reading The main theme follows a retired field marshal who has decided to write his memoirs about the victory he achieved in the Second World War and in doing so honestly reveal all the controversial issues that took place during the campaign This shocks many powerful influences who try to stop him because they never want these secrets ever to be revealed This also throws his family into turmoil because of the many personal issues that are exacerbated While the story is obviously fictitious Masters has been able to portray an interesting picture of the pressures within the British military and social establishments This cracks on at a fair pace and is worth reading
