    If you’re doing George MacDonald Fraser, can I suggest you read (if you haven’t) his wartime memoir “Quartered Safe Out Here” – it is quite brilliant.

      Thanks Mike,

      I haven’t read it yet. I’ve wanted to read it ever since I heard him talk about his wartime experiences on Desert Island Discs.
