          I've read that one. I think I have it stashed away in a box somewhere...

          • I had to put aside my Zulu reading, which is just for fun, in order to work on a project! Now I'm reading The Official Priests of Rome Under the Julio-Claudians, so very academic, ugh. But it is very interesting, its just a little dry!

            • I have received as a Fathers day gift 'The search for the Sydney' by David L Mearns. The leader of the expedition that found the wrecks of H.M.A.S. Sydney and the German raider Kormoran. A magnificent book containing the German survivors account of the battle ( Being no survivors from the Australian ship) and fantastic under water photo's of the wrecks. I strongly recommend this book,it is worth every effort to acquire.

                • Stories of Faith and Courage from the Revolutionary War


                  A fantastic volume.

                  Consider how God "shed his grace" on the birth of our nation! Featuring inspiring accounts from America's Revolutionary War, this unique devotional highlights the lives of patriots who looked heavenward during the time of conflict. Through Revolution-era letters, diaries, and sermons, plus a Scripture verse and brief prayer, each day's selection explores a timeless theme such as loneliness, contentment, fear, and God's will.

                  Ms. Cook gives us a glimpse of what the Founding Fathers faced as they were forced to stand up and live loudly for the cause of freedom. By relying on the Founders' own writings, we get a glimpse into what they thought and felt as they came together to bring the United States of America into being. There are stories here from many of the better-known founders such as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin but also glimpses of the lesser-known yet equally important individuals that made up the revolution.

                              Aren't Medieval noble families just fun to read about?

                              Mortimers,de Montforts,Warricks,Godwins,etc,etc.
                              If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon
