FUBAR F***ed Up Beyond All Recognition: Soldier Slang of World War II [Secure eReader]
eBook by Gordon Rottman

eBook Category: History
eBook Description: Humorous, sarcastic, sober, pessimistic, fatalistic, defiant or defeatist, slang is an important part of every soldier's vocabulary. Much of the slang of World War II was handed down from World War I and earlier conflicts. These words were so ingrained into the soldier's vocabulary that their use was continued by a new generation of soldiers and by the end of the war some terms had even passed into standard everyday usage.

This book is a detailed survey of the slang of WWII as used and evolved by US, German and Commonwealth fighting men and women. It lists hundreds of these distictive and evocative words with their definitions and origins, but and also includes contemporary cartoons and images, transporting the reader back through the decades into the world of the WWII warrior.
