    • The Bear and the Dragon by Tom Clancy
      2013 I'm going into West Point if it kills me. 2017 (or 2012 depending on West Point) I'm joining the Airborne if it kills me and it actually might.

            • The Power of Images in the Age of Augustus, by Paul Zanker:


              This is a very interesting book. I highly recommend it to anyone trying to understand how Augustus used art and architcture to help further his agenda and become sole ruler of Rome. This is an interesting angle, since most of what one usually reads about the Augustan take-over is concerning all the political machinations, but this book shows that it was much more complicated than that. Excellent!

              • I am reading The Batlle For Surigao Staits by Tony Tully. It is an excellent book describing Japanese preparations and sailing for battle aware the US submarines are hunting for them. Eventually the first air strike hits them so all hell breaks loose.
                Mr Tully has written a surprisingly fresh insight into the least known of the Leyte Battles and has povided some surpises such as Fuso did not sink in two halves, that she retained power far longer than we thought and other information.
                I would recommend this book to any serious naval scholar, escpecially about the Naval Stuggles around Leyte Gulfs, and the mind set of those men who led the forces.

                      • Goodbye to All That - Robert Graves.

                        portions of Amazon.com review.....

                        The quintessential memoir of the generation of Englishmen who suffered in World War I is among the bitterest autobiographies ever written. Robert Graves's stripped-to-the-bone prose seethes with contempt for his class, his country, his military superiors, and the civilians who mindlessly cheered the carnage from the safety of home.
