The weather forecast is not brilliant and I hate driving in the rain, however I will at least make it in daylight, coming back on Sunday night of course will be a different kettle of fish but hey ho, you have to make an effort.
Regular readers of the View will be disappointed on Sunday as obviously I will be at swords drawn from 9am until 5pm, however look on the bright side, no moans, besides the world has passed me by this week with not a lot to complain about. Part of the reason is that our living room is once again a building site and we will not have access to the TV for maybe another month or so, as I do not read newspapers I am may as well be on a desert island, four star of course none of that build your own farm stuff.
I have put the white flag up on Max Hastings' spy book, I have struggled to get half way through, and it is a weighty tome, but I can't find the will power to pick it up again. Thankfully two new books dropped through the door from Helion Publishing, 'Green Leader' which recounts the Rhodesian response to a heartless terrorist attack on a civil airliner, I have an interest in this book as I drew the maps for it. The second volume the one which I have chosen to read first is entitled 'Liddel Hart to Joan Littlewood' by Brian Bond, I was intrigued by this book when my wife was asked to index it, I caught snippets and immediately knew this was for me. The book is a study of British military history and in the main deals with our attitudes to WWI and WWII, I like debunking and this book debunks many things we take for granted about both wars.
Before I leave here is a link to the cockpit conversation of 'Green Leader' warning the Zambians not to interfere as his forces shoot up several terrorist camps in Zambia.
