So I was doing my usual early month search of the various online book sellers and eBay and what should I find? An excellent 1st edition, in crisp, unclipped dust jackt, of Bill Lambert's previously mentioned book for the very, very low price of $34. I purchased it immediately and am now waiting for it to arrive from Ottawa. Talk about timely. smile2

Nope Shredward, it's Norwegian. But some of my ancestors did get over to Ireland on occasion back in the 10th and 11th centuries, so it's likely they brought some of that luck back with them, along with those fiery red-haired lassies they were so fond of.

Oh I got it second hand ina pocket edition for a very few euros/dollars some years ago ...the most incredible in his narrative is the one of his leave in London and the very strange way his combat career stopped ...biut the way he describes the combat missions is outstanding in its dryness...the guy was not a poet obviously, but a rough fighter.
