This carefully crafted ebook: "SNAKE AND SWORD (Unabridged)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Snake and Sword is one of the first novels of P. C. Wren. Damocles de Warrenne, or simply Dam, has inherited irrational fear of snakes from his mother and, though quite intelligent, capable and brave soldier, he faints at the mere sight of a snake, which is causing him big problems. He can't manage to become an officer in the army, but only a private. He also loses love and respect of the woman he fancies and it is leading him deeper into self exile. Dam must conquer his fears in order to regain the respect of his fellow soldiers and the love of a woman. Percival Christopher Wren (1875-1941) was an English writer, mostly of adventure fiction. He is remembered best for Beau Geste, a much-filmed book of 1924, involving the French Foreign Legion in North Africa. This was one of 33 novels and short story collections that he wrote, mostly dealing with colonial soldiering in Africa. While his fictional accounts of life in the pre-1914 Foreign Legion are highly romanticized, his details of Legion uniforms, training, equipment and barrack room layout are generally accurate, which has led to unproven suggestions that Wren himself served with the legion. The descriptions of Legion garrison life given in his work The Wages of Virtue, written in 1914, closely match those contained in the autobiographical In the Foreign Legion by ex-legionnaire Edwin Rosen.
