‘Some sort of army manoeuvre seems to have ground to a mindless halt in a water-filled pit overlooked by a large tree; then you notice that the
whole countryside is painted in shades of khaki. There’s an acute feeling
that the landscape is more intelligent than its owners’ (Sunday Telegraph,
27 February 1983).
