      • 1918 god na vostoke Rossii - The Year 1918 in the Russian East.
        First hand accounts written by White Russian veterans of the first battles of the Russian Civil War along the Volga river, in the Urals and Siberia. Very difficult to put down.

            • Kim- Rudyard Kipling


              Kim is a rogue like Huck Finn and Oliver Twist. He is the man for all opportunities and is called the "Friend of all Mankind". He is neither Hindu nor Muslim, he is neither Buddhist nor Christian. Given his background as the orphan son of a Irish military man and a local girl he is a little bit of everything.

                        • After finishing a Nathaniel Drinkwater omnibus, which comprises Baltic Mission, In Distant Waters and A Private Revenge, i shall start on Paul Strathern's 'Napoleon in Egypt' looks like a very riveting book. Then on to David Cordingly's 'Cochrane the Dauntless'.

                          • I have just about finished "The Last Stand of Fox Company".

                            It has been an informative, if dry read. It would have benefited considerably from more first-person accounts from the battle. The author obviously had them, based on the anecdotes laced through the narrative.

                            I learned about the battle, but little about the men who fought it!

                            • Not many laughs...

                              ...in fact not any, but I have just finished 'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy. Its good, and I nearly blubbed at the end like a big girls blouse, but for goodness sakes - if you are feeling a bit depressed, dont read this book because you will be by the end of it.
