          It was a good book, I learned a lot about Russian expansion from the Russian heartland. I am still reading August 1914 by Solzhenitsyn, and I'm finding it fascinating.

            • "Street without joy" by Fall. A classic of the wars in Vietnam.

              It has done a lot of eye opening and provoked a lot of thinking. I highly recommend it to all that are interested in those wars and especially to my fellow Nam vets.

                I actually read his Death of The Wehrmacht and thought it was excellent.

                        • A new addition to my library. In nearly 100 selections—poems, stories, novel excerpts, travel pieces, diary entries, memoirs, and letters—Becoming Americans presents the full range of the experience of coming to America: the reasons for departure, the journey itself, the shock and spectacle of first arrival, the passionate ambivalence toward the old country and the old life, and above all the struggle with the complexities of America. Arranged in chronological order by date of arrival, this unprecedented collection presents a history of the United States that is both familiar and surprisingly new, as seen through the fresh eyes and words of newcomers from more than 40 different countries.

                            • Saving Afghanistan

                              Saving Afghanistan. Edited by V. Krishnappa, Shanthie Mariet D'Souza, and Priyanka Singh. Published by the Indian Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses.



                              According to the IDSA website, the book is "about the future of Afghanistan which seems to be rapidly slipping into chaos. It contains perspectives on counter-insurgency and nation-building in Afghanistan. The expert contributors in this book focus on some key issues like, the character of the conflict in Afghanistan; the role of regional actors; the nature of engagement of the US and its allies; the assessment of the future course of action by major actors and the role played by INGOs and the international community at large. More significantly, the experts sought to answer the crucial question: what can be done to stabilise Afghanistan? This volume is a collection of their insightful papers."

                              Very good and interesting read so far...
