    • Sea of Thunder

      Last night I started the highly readable "Sea of Thunder" that chronicles William Halsey, Ernest Evans, Takeo Kurita and Matome Ugaki as they fight the Pacific war that culminates at the huge battle of Leyte Gulf.

      Peace through superior firepower.

      • Battle Cry of Freedom for the third time. I'm convinced there should be a required history class for all high school seniors with "Battle Cry" as the text book!!!
        The most visable part of a persons education is their parents example !

        Christianity is made far too complicated by far too many denominations.
        It's truly a simple concept.
        Dont take my word for it---Read the Book of Romans!

            Peter Kemp - excellent choice, Laurent. I didn't know he had written an autobiography though....

                Oh, how is it? I've seen it in stores here and been tempted to get it. I think he also did a book on the 95th Rifles of Sharpe fame.

                • G I Joe and Lillie



                  GI Joe & Lillie
                  by Joseph S. Bonsall
                  A simply told true story of love, commitment and patriotism

                  Joe Bonsall is a successful entertainer with more than 20 years as a member of the Oak Ridge Boys. He has also written a series of children's books about Molly the Cat. In GI Joe & Lillie, he weaves a down-to-earth tale - the true story
                  of his parents.

                  GI Joe, his dad, and Lillie, his mother, are presented with all their strengths and weaknesses. Neither parent comes from wealth, education or a strong family background, yet like so many of their generation, these two ordinary young people became the defenders of freedom during WWII.

                    It's a well written look at the experiences of the 23rd Royal Welch Fusiliers throughout the Revolution. The 23rd serves as an example of the British soldier in general since the regt. was involved in the war from Lexington & Concord through to Yorktown. The book covers the entire war, so the author doesn't get into a lot of detail on some of the battles, but he does offer some interesting insights into the lives and experiences of the soldiers using some previously unpublished primary sources.

                    • I just finished reading the third book in the Eragon series, the Inheritance Cycle. The name of the book is "Brisingr".

                            Mon russe s'améliore chaque jour, bien que j'aie négligé mon allemand dernièrement. Bien que, je regrette vraiment que je n'aie pas appris de français dans l'école. Malheureusement, mes parents n'ont pas considéré de placement de moi dans l'immersion française....

                            • Oh ! Mais tu te debrouilles archi-bien en francais , mon vieux !

                              Tu fais meme de beaux accords en subjonctif que , helas ! bien des quebecois ou meme des francais a demi-eduques ( pas forcement d'origine maghrebine ) ne feraient point....

                              Bientot tu manieras la langue francaise comme Racine , Peguy , Corneille ou Rivarol !
