It is also interesting to note how critically Anderson would handle the Cahiers du Cinéma form of directorial worship, as in a Sight and Sound piece in which he calls the journal’s adulation of directors such as Hawks and Preminger ‘a perverse cultivation of the meretricious’.

Thompson broke protocol by running forward to the Sherman under rifle fire, to call down into the turret. He received no answer. It was a tiny exploit in that formal operation, the liberation of Perugia, itself part of the larger victory in Italy and, ultimately, the victory in Europe. But Thompson’s memoir goes beyond the leggy boy running through bullets to check on his men and later finding half of one burned to ashes in the driver’s seat. It includes the letters sent to him when, in spite of the certainty of the troopers’ deaths, the army had only posted them as ‘missing’ and their families were being put through the mutual strain of hope and anguish for impossibly long.

In addressing myself to the English and their Englishness I intend no offence, these neurotically offendable days, either to Scots, Welsh or Irish still ambivalently gathered under the heading ‘British’ (and still formally recognising the Union Jack as their national flag), still less to the 5 per cent of the population whose parents left the old empire some time between 1950 and 1970 or so for the promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as held out in Birmingham, Bradford, Liverpool, East London and elsewhere.
