I have that on BBC CD. It's no longer available as a CD but you can get it on iTunes for £3.95 ...

Loads of text books for my MA in Military History that I have just started. For relaxation have just finished Satre's "The Age of Reason" and am a few pages into "The Reprieve" the second book in the trilogy, a much harder read as he runs several themes in parallel and skips between them sometimes on a sentence by sentence basis. I haven't read them for about 20 years which was too long to wait!
