A Sailor of Austria: In which, without really intending to, Otto Prohaska becomes Official War Hero No. 27 of the Habsburg Empire
Book 1:The Otto Prohaska Novels
Lovers of great military history rejoice! The beloved Prohaska books are back. This ironic, hilarious, and poignant story, the first in a four-book series, will delight and entertain—and leave you wanting more.
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.
