Going to Troy after I'm done with Roman Britain.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

It's 1920 and I'm in British East Africa. I've just built my new home and a medicine woman has gatecrashed my house warming party, laying a curse on my family. Looks like I've cut down a sacred fig tree where I'm planning to have my polo field. She's not pleased! :eek:

Just leaving Southhampton in 1938 to take my family to safety on our little boat after a week of bombs being dropped by an unknown enemy.

This one is chilling, to say the least. Nevil Shute's ORDEAL. He wrote it in 1938 and imagined what would happen to England if an enemy attacked and bombed the major ports and cities without warning. Terrible shortages of food and water, civil unrest and panic, cholera. In early 1939, the British ARP reprinted bits of it in pamphlets to accompany their own instructions for gas-masks, shelters, stock-piling food, etc. The thing that is most striking to me is the difference of the English people between the unready, bewildered populace of Shute as compared to the reality of the British in 1939 as they hunkered down through the Battle of Britain. This is a real foreshadow of Shute's later work, ON THE BEACH, in which he wrote of the aftermath of a devasting nuclear exchange. This one also focuses on ordinary people dealing with the horrors of a situation over which they have no control.
