In a post-Arab Spring world, the parallels are obvious. I give up the wine, but I intend to wade in Hancock's boots to-morrow. ``Hal.---Wear them, but do not wade in them. For a very different book, I enjoyed John Boyne's The Boy In the Striped Pajamas. The fighting was to end on the 11th hour of 11th day of 11th month (i.e. 11 am on Nov. 11, 1918). Kashmira Sheth’s other novels are also excellent: Blue Jasmine and Koyal Dark, Mango Sweet.

Set in the Greek islands from 1940 thru 1944 (mainly) it tells of the occupation of this Greek island by the Italians and then the Germans by using an educated Italian Artillery Captain who plays the Mandolin and his relationship with a very pretty (naturally) Greek woman in whose house he is billeted.

Weapons and robots from "Star Wars" are making their way into real life, as well. Add to this the aura of “prophet” that surrounded General William “Billy” Mitchell, their erstwhile leader during the 1920s, and you begin to understand the cultish dimensions of the air power theorists. But this is a highly ordered world of garden clubs and debutante balls. For a time, Misha lives a comfortable underground life, thieving with Uri and a group of other boys, always sharing some of what he steals with the local orphanage.

The collection reveals an unflinching and honest portrayal of life at war for the ordinary man - from a British patrol in the remote desert to volunteer French soldiers in the trenches.
