        You don't say? I requested that from the library before Christmas, and it still hasn't arrived yet; but that's weird. Let me know your thoughts.

          • Hi guys ! I'm presently reading The Rise and Fall of the Lufwaffe by David Irving. Actually, it's a biography of Feldmarschall Erhard Milch who organized/created the Luftwaffe. BM

                        That was quick. You must have a lot more time to read than I do.

                              I read Mein Kampf a few years ago. Worth reading if you want to study the history of Nazi Germany. However, I think it is highly biased (of course) and very heavy on nationalism. Germany was coming out beaten in a major war and its people needed to cling on anything that would elevate their nation ... in the end, at a very high cost. Mein Kampf was known as the blueprint of the Nazi Party. It is amazing that the other nations let Nazi Germany go so far.

                              • I'm currently reading three books. One of them the Glenn Book I mentioned earlier. It got tedious (sorry Glenn) so I picked this one up:



                                which paints a somewhat rosy picture of the Old Dominion before the WBTS.

                                I'm also reading this one for my Byzantine book reading group:



                                It's exceptionally well written and highly recommended.
