What can I say, Charley, but 'fucking brilliant!'
Have just ordered Roy Palmer's 'What a Lovely War' through Amazon, and noticed that the foreword is by Lyn Macdonald, a much respected war historian whose works I'm already familiar with.
So that's it. Done and dusted. Got what I came for (and a helluva lot besides) so I'm off, clearly none the wiser but much better informed thanks to you guys.
Ho hum.., bit bored now..., think I'll wander down to the pub..., have a jar or three..., might even try out 'Fucking Tobruk' on the locals. Fuck it, why not?
