The Otto Prohaska Novels
Lovers of great military literature rejoice! This ironic, hilarious, and poignant four-book series will delight and entertain--and leave you wanting more. Otto Prohaska is a loyal subject of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, never mind that the Habsburgs are over-blown, inept rulers and the bloated empire is bogged down in red tape that brings communication to a screeching halt. Otto proudly serves as a submarine commander in the land-locked empire's navy and even volunteers for a stint as a pilot in the under-supplied but over-rated air corps.
