Opening the week on Monday, Jackie contemplates love and loss in wartime France in Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulks.
On Tuesday, we have Blackadder Goes Forth: Michael survives the Great War, 1914-1917. Wait … bugger!
On Wednesday and Thursday we are running a two-part interview with popular Vulpes guest Renate Benedict, who tells us about her remarkable parents and what happened to her and her family in Nazi Germany before, during and after Kristallnacht, November 1938.
Then, on Friday, in the last of our Armistice-themed pieces, Lisa loses herself in Libby Cone’s haunting War on the Margins.
Kirsty changes the mood completely on Saturday when she boldly goes ahead and tells us why she loves the original cast Star Trek films – and why Spock is one of the great fictional creations.
