          • One Bullet Away by Nathaniel Fick.

            An interesting read about his time in the Marine Corps as an officer on the eve of Sept. 11 when the US military went from a peace time force to a war time force. Fick talks about being in Afghanistan in 2001, his move to 1st Recon, and the 2003 Iraq War.

            He talks about it in this hour long video which was part of the Nimitz Lecture Series.

                Of course. I own two copies. It's a great book!

                Right now I'm really Sowell's book. He's one of two authors that I wish they'd just mail me his books and bill me. I'd pay whatever they want *. The guy is not only a great economist, he's a great author as well.

                  This is on hold due to the release of the most important book of this century. Ok, thats a wee bit of hyperbole. However, if you are a football fan, you simply must pick up a copy of the following:

                      • Colditz

                        This is by Reinhold Eggers, a translated version from the original German. Eggers was one of the senior German Officers in charge of the famous POW camp that Germans ran for incorrigible escapers from many nations. It gives the German view of events for about the four years the camp operated in the old castle.

                        Paul Reid's The Colditz Story was the first account (as I recall) after WW2. This book came out about 10 years or so ago, maybe more.

                        A fascinating read, so far. I have the paperback copy on loan from another chat group friend, who thought I'd like it. It was published in the UK.
