An Ice-cream War is William Boyd's hilarious bestselling novel of love and battle
'We will all melt like ice-cream in the sun!' British soldier, East Africa, October 1914
As millions are slaughtered on the Western Front, a ridiculous and little-reported campaign is being waged in East Africa - a war they continued after the Armistice because no one told them to stop.
Primarily a gripping story of the men and women swept up by the passions of love and battle, William Boyd's magnificently entertaining novel also elicits the cruel futility and tragedy of it all.
An Ice-cream War will be loved by fansof Any Human Heart and A Good Man in Africa, as well as readers of Ben Macintyre, SebastianFaulks, Nick Hornby and Hilary Mantel.
'Compulsively readable' Observer
'He has a black-edged laughter of his own . . . quite outstanding' Sunday Times
