Jaroslav Hasek
Birth: Apr. 30, 1883
Death: Jan. 3, 1923

Author. Immensely prolific, he had written over 1,000 short stories by the time he was 30. Conscripted into the Austrian Army in 1914, he spent most of World War I in Russian POW camps and after his release served as a commissar of the Red Army. Hasek's experiences were the basis for his monumental satire "The Good Soldier Svejk" (1923), about a lovable idiot who turns the crumbling Austrian Army upside-down with his naivete; it has been translated into 60 languages. Hasek planned the novel in six volumes but had completed only four before his death at 39 of heart disease. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
