And it has helped a generation of tragically feminised New Men and metrosexuals to rediscover their inner chap.

Unlike other periods when WWII was "in" like in the 1970's and 1980's, when the interest spurred a great deal of valuable new research, this "new wave" appears to be just interested in entertainment. A psychic safe haven---the male equivalent of women who read Jane Austen.

"It's about the triumph of good over evil. It takes place all over the world. It has the ultimate baddy, who dies at the end in a squalid bunker."

"there's tremendous yearning and nostalgia for the decency and simplicity of the last Good War"

LMAO! I'd rather wish there wasn't a single book published about WW2 from now on.
