Enemy on the Euphrates

All this Back of Beyond nonsense has spilled over into some related reading, so I'm now starting on Enemy on the Euphrates, which I have on the Kindle but may also add to the physical bookshelf as a good old fashioned hardback. I didn't get a chance to do the usual Friday afternoon charity shop book hunt, so I'll be heading off tomorrow in search of some more books to overburden the furniture with (you can never have enough books...that's my excuse anyway). I've also been inspired by the fantastic painting on the Over Open Sights blog of Mr Mark Hargreaves:

...I'm absolutely nowhere near this level of superb painting and shading but we can all aspire to great things, even if we rarely get there in the end. If I ever win the lottery, this gentleman will definitely be painting my armies! 


  1. Looks an interesting read and thanks for the great link :)

  2. It does look interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  3. God bless you, Jim. You are a gent an' no mistake!
