EBook's lack of proofing does it an injustice.

Examples:

"...was told in noun (sic) terms that..." [in no uncertain?]

"...by die (sic) time I got back to her, she was dead." [inexplicably, 'the' seems to have been replaced with German 'die' several times.]

"...de-mining an always (sic) road..." ['always' a road as opposed to just 'sometimes' a road?]

"... a few huts would be found here and there, but (sic) of any inhabitants." [devoid?]

"... the command vehicles and the now (sic) gasoline trucks..." [new?]

"Not a soul was insight. (sic)" [in sight?]

"... his chest tom (sic) open by a machine-gun..." [torn?]

"...the 43d, [battalion] which counted 834 men each at the outset, now mustered 452,497...(sic)" [Total French armed forces in Indonesia was about 278,000. Almost half a million in one battalion is absurd!]

"... carefully packing away their hallowed relics and shell-tom (sic) battle flags..." [torn?]

"... the Death March of the French Union garrison of Dien Bien Phu, lasting from May to My (sic) 1934 (sic)." [The battle was from March 13 to May 7, 1954. In 1934, France still had its third republic (ended May, 1940.)]
