  • Just finished reading "The Interpreter" by Alice Kaplan, published in 2005. As it says on the jacket cover: The American Army executed 70 of its own soldiers in Europe between 1943 and 1946. Almost all of them were black, in an army that was overwhelmingly white. One Frenchman witnessed the injustice, and never forgot.

    I found this to be an interesting book, but feel there could have been more background information and detail.

              Johnston is a great one. Too bad he died a few years back. I would love to see his stuff made into movies.
              If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon

                • By a certain member at these forums .



                  This book covers a major element of WW2 not normally found written in English.

                  For both its style of writing and range of subject matter used, I would give this 5 stars (9.5 out of 10 as perhaps a few more maps could have been incorporated).

                  A highly informative and enjoyable read, and a must for any tank fan .

                    • I've never had a chance to get into the Showtime series Dexter.

                      This was good. Guess I'll have to rent season one...

                          I liked it. It's more of a social history. How they lived, what they ate, clothes they wore, things they did for fun, the justice system, religion, medicine, traveling, and so on.

                            • War against War.

                              A comparison between the left wing anti war movements of the German Empire and the United Kingdom.

                              A bit hardcore to read, interesting but hardly gripping.

                              Next will be Winston Churchills World War Two volume Three. Well I hope. Have to borrow it from KF University in Graz.

                                I have now read the first two (was given as a Birthday present and although I had never heard of them, was highly impressed).
