THEY NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD

An unflattering recording of a lowlife of the military in his operations overseas, this tells of GI Harvey Bull in the ETO where he quickly manipulates a public relations berth of relative safety and comfort and unlimited opportunity. Fancy on the finagles and the figures, Harvey's opening deals in cigarettes and candy lead to ventures of greater magnitude as he makes off with a truck and a load of rations for Paris, does a considerable traffic in cameras, watches, pistols in Germany, and returns to Paris to liquidate dollars for francs, stays on after VE day to enroll with the AMG. A fictional case history of a louse- which if it doesn't miss out on authenticity, also hasn't the verve of some of its predecessors- I Can Get It for You Wholesale, What Makes Sammy Run?, etc.
