If the election of Barack Obama fills you with dread rather than elation, you're not alone - in fact, pull up a chair next to James Delingpole who has seen this all before and knows exactly where America is heading: into a morass of sprawling government that will slowly start suffocating our economy, our liberties, and our culture.
"Yup This is One of Those Books and I Love It"
Start every day off RIGHT! Try one of our 365 ways to drive a liberal (even more) crazy. Whether you quote from the Constitution (what, that old relic?) or point out the facts about global warming (as in, the planet has been steadily cooling for the past decade)-this is one sure-fire way to get under a lefty's (thin) skin.
"Not Up To Author's Usual High Standards"
Dick Coward is an ordinary chap in extraordinary circumstances. World War II's answer to Flashman, only much more honourable – Dick's a Coward by name but not by nature. Storming the Normandy beaches with the green berets of 47 (RM) Commando, Coward is protected by his long-suffering batman (and head groom to his estate) Price, for whom *noblesse oblige* died long ago at Passchendaele. But there are worse things than war, not least the horrific possibility that the family estate might fall into the hands of Coward’s brother.
After the horrors of D-Day, Lt Dick Coward and Sgt Tom Price find themselves plunged into even greater chaos as they land in the deceptively tranquil countryside around Arnhem, as part of Operation Market Garden. What should be a pushover turns into Britain's biggest military disaster of the Second World War. But if it's a cock-up, by golly is it a glorious one. Rarely if ever have Allied soldiers acquitted themselves better than in their bid to capture "The Bridge Too Far." As usual Coward and Price are in the thick of it.
