...tells of the last war from a curious and unheroic vantage point - that of a strange little unit with the ostensible mission of clearing out the remnants of facism overlooked by the front-line troops.

The Freebooters is a novel filled with colorful episode, with outrageous things occuring plausibly. But the liveliness is deceptive, for one grows increasingly aware of a nightmare quality that becomes frightening. It's source is Mr. Wernicks serious intention: he reveals tellingly the indifference, the callouness and the opportunism of the liberators, the apathy, cynicism and despair of the liberated.
