    Jonathan Ball It's a way of life.

    The beauty I’ve discovered of focusing on one particular campaign for a time is way it has introduced me to books that I’d easily overlook via casual browsing.

    Does this mean we might be... some sort of... cartel?.. :unsure:


    The most shambolic & easily distracted cartel in the world, though. The next season of Narcos involving sting operations to instantly capture all members by 75% discount stickers in a front remaindered & secondhand military book shop.
    Hmmm. N&MP already have most of our personal details on file. What if they turn out to be 'The Man'...

    I have this dream that one day WW2Talk will become so successful that Otto will be able to buy us all a real-world clubhouse , Von P will donate his library and we can all sit around drinking Whiskey and soda, or pink gins (for the Naval types), having serious discussions and sounding erudite......I imagine it would look something like this......

    Tequila & Redbull, please.

    You beat me by minutes, D, but I immediately went to this for a similar reality pic, as I couldn't find one representing my 'lottery win' vision of a field full of burnt out tanks & landrovers with badly maintained stately home in the background. Maybe some fighting.

    And I know who's library we're building on.
    I'll be blunt; It's Idler's.
    Though... there must be at least a couple of less 'share-y' chaps here that have seen the shelfie pics & thought 'amateurs!'.

    That's surely a representation of a normal day out for Owen. (Though it must have been at the early stages as there are some caravans left standing.)


    Now who would live in a house like this?

    There is definitely a joke in there about Andy and a hard drive :)
