It might be a little too much for some of today’s easily-offended, ultra-sensitive moppets to take, but the fact is that the ancient Greeks, those much-lauded creators of the ancient Olympics, couldn’t give two hoots for the notion that taking part was more important than winning. As Robin Waterfield tells us in his Prologue to Olympia, for the Greeks, “winning was everything and losers felt ashamed of their failure.” (read review)

By the late 1930s, Czechoslovakia prepared for German invasion as Hitler’s dreams for the Third Reich appeared increasingly plausible. By October 1937, many Czechs, assuming the worst, turned their attention instead to the Grand Pardubice steeplechase, a highlight of the national sporting calendar. Even this most demanding of races had been dominated Germans and Austrians; the home crowd’s only hope was that 1937’s Teutonic contingent would fail to finish. (read review)

The backdrop to this thrilling, fast-moving tale reads like the introduction to a Gallic version of a Bond novel. It’s to author Jamie Reid’s credit that readers could believe Ian Fleming was at the typewriter as we’re introduced to the book’s Monsieur X, Patrice des Moutis. Reid successfully invokes Paris of the 1950s, isolated pockets of which became a glamorous, fashionable, Gauloise-smoking counterpoint to much of Europe, still on its knees following six years of war.
