'the Grunt Factor' by Crisp E Bacon
‘The Grunt Factor’ is the tale of a special pig who, having led a simple life on the end of a potato mash manufacturing production line, finds himself literally thrust headlong into the Intelligence Organisation during the Second World War.The story tells of his youth, having been brought up by his grandparents, his hopes of one day playing cricket for Yorkshire and the sad episode of having to leave his love behind.Being largely overstretched, the human element of the Armed Forces had no choice but to pass all information gathering to the country’s pigs, firstly with disastrous consequences, but then eventually, as time moved on, with enormous success.This book reveals not only how intelligent pigs can be, but more so, how very brave. One such pig undergoes rigid training in languages and lip reading. Furthermore, for the sake of Great Britain, our pig faces a medical operation which changes his life forever. He eventually returns home a national hero, but not before enduring a number of hair raising moments...
