4.0 out of 5 stars 'I made the mistake of saying I thought Milton dull', 19 Jan 2014
This review is from: Love is Blue: A Wartime Diary (Hardcover)
'These few moments are worth all the suffering in the world to me and I have suffered so little for them - but I will pay, like Faust, with my soul.' And I thought, yes, I'm afraid you will.

WAAF capers, continued. In the first volume (Love Lessons) it's Pandora who quotes from Milton; here it's the splendidly named Oscarine, and, on page 38, a Yugoslav - all quotes gamely reproduced, not to mention the Yugoslav's crushing rejoinder 'it is so great that it nearly approaches silence', something of which our splendid diarist is never in danger. An early sighting of trucking (as in sixties slogan 'keep on trucking'), also cad used as a term of (almost) approbation
