COLONEL EFFINGHAM'S RAID-BY BERRY FLEMING Colonel Effingham's Raid (Hardcover) Hardcover Publisher: New York: Duell Sloan Pearce, 1943 ASIN: B000GVJPIQ NO DUSTJACKET TIGHT BINDING, CLEAN PAGES, P.O.'S NAME ON FFEP SPINE FADED, MINIMAL CORNER BUMPING/SCUFFING NOT LIBRARY DISCARD OR REMAINDER 279 pages Book Description: "New York: Duell, Sloane and Pearce, 1943", 1943. "Edition Not Stated: HardCover, 8vo., 279 pages. SUMMARY:This 1943 gem has been out of print for a generation, a loss to the language and to the country. Set in 1940 Georgia, it is the story of W. Seaborn Effingham, Colonel U.S. Army, retired, who returns to his home town of Fredericksville. The colonel offers to write a weekly column for a local paper, covering the war in Europe. But after many years away from Fredericksville, Effingham doesn't understand how its citizens have abdicated all government to a small, one-party clique, the Home Folks Party. In his colorful, detailed account of Revolutionary and Civil War local history with occasional attention paid to the growing World War, the Colonel's column stirs up the powers that be. The community is split over whether to renovate or tear down the town courthouse, and there's a showdown in which Effingham is a catalyst. Fleming's barbs seem gentle, but they go deep in this delightful satire as we watch the odd, single-minded, thoroughly upstanding Colonel bring to bear the forces of honesty and common sense. Although the ending isn't officially a victory for him, Effingham really does win. Second Chance also plans to reissue the 88-year-old Fleming's Lucinderella and The Make Believers. Bravo to publisher and author. "Chapter One : I shan't soon forget that warm April morning in 1940 when the first hint reached us that Cousin Willy had reappeared full-blown in the life of our little Southern town." Contemporary novel of the South in Fredericksville intertwined with the past history of the Civil War the Confederates. W. Seaborn Effingham, Colonel U.S. Army, retired, is an officer, a gentleman, a Citizen, in the best sense of the words; he is also one of the most vigorous winning characters to be created by a contemporary American writer. This novel is satire at its gentlest and best, agreeably written and always entertaining, despite the hazards encountered by the Colonel in his struggle for justice. This book-of-the-month club novel follows the attempts at reform by a retired Southern military officer who decides to take on his City Hall over local issues. Examines the workings of democracy in practice when those who fight for it come back and try to get it to work. It is not historical, although there is a good deal of history in it, and it does not deal with decadent poor whites, or romantic relics of antebellum aristocracy. Colonel Effingham's raid is upon a smallish city rather deep in the south, which one suspects is highly typical, Colonel Effingham feels the same way about it. He is a member of an old town family but he has been serving his country all over the world, and has come back, retired, to live in his home town, with ideas of what he owes the country and what citizens owe their community. A most humorous, ironic and most Southern novel to come out of the South. W. Seaborn Effingham, Colonel U.S. Army, retired, is an officer, a gentle-man, and a Citizen. When he returns to the southern city that had been his home, he has no intention of idling away his time at whiskey-drinking or card-playing. He offers to write a column on military affairs for one of the city's newspapers. This state of neutrality does not last long, however, for he becomes interested in the affairs of the city, and soon his conflict with the forces of tyranny and corruption at City Hall comes into the open, to the wonder and chagrin of many easy-going fellow-townsmen." Georgia writer Berry Fleming’s (1899-1989) most famous novel was set in his home town of Augusta and involved local politics. It was made into a 20th Century Fox movie of the same name starring Savannah-born actor Charles Coburn. Made into 1945 movie starring Charles Coburn and Joan Bennett. Comedy about ex-officer Coburn fighting to save town's historical landmark.
