In 1915, Rudard Kipling snarled that there were “only two divisions in the world to-day – human beings and Germans.”
It’s a point of view.
Tomorrow I’m going away for a week’s holiday in Germany. A pleasant and civilised coach-tour through the Rhineland, booked through a Guardian special offer. I shan’t be taking any Kipling with me, but have a nice long Arnold Bennett to while away any longeurs.
I’ll report back in a week of anything of Great War interest that I come across.
