    The Wellington & Napoleon Quartet. Simon Scarrow.

    On the 3rd book in this series now. Historical novels.

    Thoroughly recommended to anyone interested in the subject.

    Sill reading Defeat in the West about the German defeat in WW2, which shows German efficiency is a bit of a myth to put it mildly.

    There's German efficiency, then there's Nazi efficiency. The Nazis were notoriously inefficient at everything. Hitler reigned over a government that was a complete shambles. As a dictator he did almost no dictating, but spent the vast majority of his time sleeping, watching films or entertaining his cronies. Virtually all major decisions were taken by sycophants who did things hoping that that's what he wanted.

    I can't believe anyone of our age hasn't read it! It's possibly the best 'dystopian future' novel ever written. 1984 was a bit crap really. And Atwood looks a bit like Granny from Sylvester and Tweetiepie, you'd barely credit her with thinking those things. Still acerbic and funny when she makes an appearance though.

    I'd never even heard of it til recently, which is odd as my eldest sister is a librarian & started my love of books from a very young age!
