    Now I started “Pale Rider” from Laura Spinney. About the Spanish flu in 1918-1920.
    Very interesting.

    It took me some time due to the busy period, but I read it through.
    Very interesting book, lots of information and a very helpful analysis of the cultural differences between the US and the UKicon mentality at war.
    The chapter that really got me the deepest were the last two though: In Enemy Hands: The Camps and In Retrospect.
    The presence of UK or Commonwealth traitors or collaborators has reminded me a lot of the tragic influence such people had for the Italianicon prisoners in the Sovieticon Union during WWII, where they encouraged the worst tratment and also the killing of Italian prisoners in order to make the war a bloody and hard lesson for the Italians.
    Togliatti, the much revered communist leader has such a responsibility in the tens of thousands of deaths, that he should burn in hell for eternity, but here he is still considered like statist of the greatest level.
    In any case, thanks for the suggestion, it has been a really greatly interesting reading.
