Twelve of a Kind
This is the third in the series of three volumes in which Anthony Holt describes the often bizarre, amusing, or sometimes sad events which seemed to surround him as a naval aviator in various parts of the world and later, as a senior manager in London’s Clubland.
The stories are interspersed with a couple of strange events experienced by his father in the Second World War and lightened by one or two tales of what “might have been”. Whether, at sea, in the air, on a battle-front or in the grand settings of Gentlemen’s Clubs, they will bring a smile, or a tear and leave the reader looking for more. The two previous volumes are “Four of Clubs” and “Nine Stories of the Sea”.

Holt has put together twelve short stories exhibiting some of the follies of modern life, in particular as it involved senior military personnel. I recommend his book highly – you will spend Sunday afternoon in charming company.
A very entertaining read. I read this collection in a couple of sittings. Didn’t want to put the book down after each story and flew through it in no time. Very enjoyable.
