OGDEN, JOHN
Silken Dalliance
. Thornton's 2009, 302pp. new hardback in d/j. This is the second part of John Ogden's military trilogy, the sequel to On Fire. It is set at the start of the 1950s in Western Germany, which had only recently ceased to be an occupied country and become one to be defended. It describes the life of an infantry regiment, as experienced by Captain Miles Player; the sub-plot concerns a tragic reunion with his former girlfriend, now married to a brother officer. The regiment spends a large part of its time recuperating from the hardships of the Korean War, the hero and his comrades indulging in wildly extravagant parties with a hedonistic superfluity of wine, women and song. In contrast, back at home, Britain was only just emerging from a bleak existence of socialist controls and ration books under Clement Attlee's austere government. (ISBN: 978085455040) .
