Synopsis: In this novel, King Arthur is rediscovered - doing battle with the Nazis during the darkest period of World War II. Donald Barthelme is the author of three previous novels and several collections of short stories, notably, "Forty Stories" and "Sixty Stories".

Product Description: An alternative history in fiction form which explores such concepts as the function of myth in history and the role of royalty in the modern world. King Arthur is rediscovered doing battle with the Nazis, and the grail to end all wars appears to be a bomb.
