Arthur and George return to Radio 4

A personal plug but a good and light description of a book reviewed here earlier Arthur and George on Radio 4's A Good Read- they pick up some really good points about the novel which I didn't have space to include. Really well worth listening to. One of the most impressive things about this program is Anthony Beevor's discussion of the Spanish civil war where he points out that war is not a neat affair as historians see it but a bloody chaos where nobody knows what is going on often.
