I'm currently reading the Max Hastings book, Catastrophe 1914, about the start of WWI. There is a mention of Arthur Ransome in Moscow, being a British correspondent, being told, "Germania delenda est." (a paraphrasing a Roman pronouncement of Carthage's doom) It is always nice to read about a favorite author, if only a short bit.
