Guardian books: Travel and War - The End

The Guardian's 1000 books series comes to an end with the rather peculiar assortment of Travel and War (and thanks once again to drasecretcampus for posting the list). 129 books here, of which I have read 36 (and started two more). My vote for neglected classic on the list goes to The Good Soldier Švejk.
