Unlikely Warriors

Postby Sprocket » November 6th, 2014, 11:29 am

I've just started reading this book, by Richard Baxell, published two years ago, about "the British in the Spanish Civil War", to quote the subtitle. I'll report on it as I read it. I've already discovered that Sir Alfred Sherman, Maggot Thatcher's political hero, was one of them, rather surprisingly, and that the actor James Robertson Justice was another.

John Le. Carre is publishing a book called "A. Delicate Truth," at the end of April and in September "The Pigeon Trail" I look forward to reading them both.
We live at a time ...characterized by a subliminal relativism that penetrates every area of life. Sometimes this relativism becomes aggressive, when it opposes those who say that they know where the truth or meaning of life is to be found. Benedict XV1.
