The Typist by Michael Knight

I really enjoyed this little book.

The main character is a young man named Van, who joins the army in 1944.  Because he is a skilled typist, he finds himself attached to General Mac Arthur's unit in Tokyo as one of the many typists who work to process the reams of orders the General generates. The book gives the reader insight in to the enlisted men who served in the Pacific Theatre, as well as their various extra curricular activities.

Spare well paced, a very enjoyable 185 pages!
