A spy novel without much spying. A thoughtful look at propaganda, informants, "loose lips" campaigns, and other effects of war on people not fighting, through the lens of the Spanish Civil War and WWII, but aware of and in response to 9/11 and the early Afghanistan war. It'd be four stars if I didn't know that there's at least two more books to go - have I started another unfinished saga, but one where only one thing happens per book?
