The Secret History of the Lord of Musashi. Primrose was more reasonable (begging pardon for the expression) than our English friends; for, although she enforced the specie system in her own family, we do not hear that she was ever desirous to intrude it into that of Neighbour Flamborough. Are our eyes so blinded---Are our ears so deafened---Are our hearts so hardened--- Are our tongues so faltered---Are our hands so fettered, that, in this our day---I say, my countrymen, in this our day, we should not mind the things that concern the well-being, nay, the very being, of our ancient kingdom, before the day be hid from our eyes?'' If there is, among that chosen band, a mean-spirited Scotsman, who prefers the orders of the minister to the unanimous voice of his country, imploring the protection of her children, let England keep him to herself.

Unlike pretty much every other novel on this list, Semper Mars is unique in that the war being waged isn’t between us humans and some unknown alien creature. The Kingdom of Hungary, actually a dictatorship under Admiral Horthy, formed after the Romanian Army pulled out of Hungary. She was taken ill immediately; and the poor infant scarce survived its birth. In this guise he ambled forth over hill and valley, the admiration of every farm-yard which they passed in their progress, till, ``low down in a grassy vale,'' they found Davie Gellatley leading two very tall deer greyhounds, and presiding over half-a-dozen curs, and about as many bare-legged and bare-headed boys, who, to procure the chosen distinction of attending on the chase, had not failed to tickle his ears with the dulcet appellation of Maister Gellatley, though probably all and each had hooted him on former occasions in the character of daft Davie.

Unbeknownst to Margot, her father is also working with Ricketts. The store-farmer and shepherd, in the same manner, used formerly to consider every spot occupied by a tree as depriving the flock of a certain quantity of food, and not only nourished malice against the woodland, but practically laboured for its destruction; and to such lamentable prejudices on the part of farmers, and even of proprietors, is the final disappearance of the natural forests of the north chiefly to be attributed.

Donald Bean Lean, and others of his class, whose depredations had hitherto been confined to other districts, appeared from thenceforward to have made a settlement on this devoted border; and their ravages were carried on with little opposition, as the Lowland gentry were chiefly Jacobites, and disarmed. At length Colonel Whitefoord applied to the Duke of Cumberland in person. He never even read or recited for the amusement of the circle; and those who desired the pleasure of his society could only obtain it on the condition of his being an equal contributor, and no more, to the social enjoyment of the day.

The interest of Waverley readily procured for Colonel Talbot the freedom of adjourning to a large garden belonging to his place of confinement. Lord Otto de Grandson was a native of Grandson, a town in Switzerland, and his impact on Swiss history is only now being discovered! I am currently reading Ben Elton 's Two Brothers, which has really sparked an interest in WWII fiction for me.
