The cost of war …

… The Second World Waugh - some thoughts on 'Put Out More Flags' and 'The 'Sword of Honour' trilogy - Mail Online - Peter Hitchens blog.  (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

They’re all connected, linked partly by the war and partly by Waugh’s melancholy version of Roman Catholicism.  I’m not in a position to know, but I believe more conventional RCs often find Waugh’s approach to the faith eccentric. Personally, I find it interesting and illuminating.
I don't find Waugh's version of Catholicism at all eccentric, probably because my own version, like his, is melancholy.
