A Sailor of Austria
In Which, Without Really Intending to, Otto Prohaska Becomes Official War Hero No. 27 of the Habsburg Empire
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In this ironic, hilarious, and poignant story, Otto Prohaska is a submarine captain serving the almost-landlocked Austro-Hungarian Empire. He faces a host of unlikely circumstances, from petrol poisoning to exploding lavatories to trigger-happy Turks. All signs point to the total collapse of the bloated empire he serves, but Otto refuses to abandon the Habsburgs in their hour of need.

Great book, but where is the editor?
This is a good book, I have thoroughly enjoyed it, however, who did the editing? The lack of proper capitalization throughout the entire book is so very bad and is so distrating that it actually takes away fron the enjoyment of reading it. It’s a great story and very well-written, but could somebody please clean up the text?
A sailor of Austria
What an unexpected gem. A wonderful combination of historical and cultural insights, humor and military adventure. Once you get past the initial set up of the old man telling his war stories, the book transports you to an amazing world.
This is a good book but should have been 2 books.Great characters and plenty of humor. I definitely recommend it to all.
