Private Angelo is now a permanent portrait in the heavenly gallery of human frailty. The drollest medley of muddle and misadventure. A high-spirited entertainment which never loses its individual ai. -Sunday Times. I first come across Private Angelo when I saw the film during my college days in the early 1960s. It was an excellent film. It sent me to the library where I found a dusty copy of the book.

We who have not been given the dono di coraggio suffer deeply, I assure you.

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 humor, 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. Here he has written a book which demonstrates that honor is not solely the preserve of the brave. Introduced by Magnus Linklater.

I first come across Private Angelo when I saw the film during my college days in the early 1960s. It was an excellent film. It sent me to the library where I found a dusty copy of the book. I read it and enjoyed it even more. Over the years I have purchased a number of copies of the book since 'friends' borrowed my copies and never returned them - I could hardly blame them. Now, at last, I have found a copy which will NOT be loaned out and will sit on the shelf for me to dip into when the mood takes me - which will be often. This is an excellently written book, full of humour and pathos. I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone ......... sadly, finding a copy will not be easy.

One of my favorite books of all time. A beautifully writte comic novel about an Italian soldier of Mussolini's army in World War Two, who only wants to escape armies but seems to get caught up in them all, from the Nazis to the opposing British and American forces. A fine and funny film starring Peter Ustinov as the hapless Private was a top British movie when it was produced shortly after the war. It seems to be unavailable now, but the book still is. If you like understated British humor as I do, this book is a Must Read!!!

I read this book when I was about thirteen years old. I got it from the libaray immediately after seeing the film with the wonderful Peter Ustinov (saidly not available on tape or CD). I enjoyed the book immensely and, over the years, searched for a copy of my own. I was never lucky enough to find one, that is, until now. The book is still funny and fun. It is what used to be called 'a good read' and remains highly entertaining. I recommend it to anyone and everyone.

I was very curious to read this book depicting, although in fiction, life in Italy during war time. I found an enjoyable novel about love, fear and courage; in the end it appears that, in desperate times, the distance between cowardice and heroism can turn out to be very short.
