SHOTS HEARD ROUND THE WORLD

The Ambassador to Brazil begins by disclaiming that the foreign service is a round of cocktail parties- but apparently it consists of a lot of duck and geese shooting. These are a sportsman's sketches, with 15 posts abroad during the past 31 years providing as scattered and plentiful hunting grounds as one could decently wish. Along with the shooting are the problems of catching the monster frogs of Peru, the political hazards in the pursuit of Czech pheasants, and some amateur attempts to sink or at least cripple a Nazi submarine with hand grenades.... The Ambassador is relentlessly amiable, and Rudolph Freund has done the illustrations to enhance the sporting appeal of these memoirs.
