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.
Treason doth never prosper: what's the reason?
Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.

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.
According to one study, the average adult has a shorter attention span (eight seconds) than a goldfish (nine seconds).
This is not surprising in today's wired , or wified world.
