This week, we'll look at the wars men wage with all its glory and tragedy. How something so awful can be a source of honor and how Napoleonic ego can lead us into horrific conflict. It's the story of mankind for better or worse and war's moral paradox largely defines the human race. Informing us in ways large and small are Kate Martin, Drifting In Silence, Jelle, Bill Laswell, CC Asia and Peter Gabriel. I'm Jim Nye.
We'll begin in Australia with Kate Martin from her 'Synthetic Shoes, Leather Boots' CD. This is 'The Fall'
