      It is pretty good. I imagine some of his conclusions are outdated with stuff uncovered by Glantz and others since the fall of the Soviet Union, but his prose makes for easy reading. One could sit down in a comfy chair and easily read it in a day or two.

        • I preordered Metro:2033 on Amazon, it's supposed to arrive on April 1st, so I'm super psyched.

          For now, I'm reading Animal Farm for the 3rd time. I think it's a pretty cool book.

          • Just finished "The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt", and though I found the diction at times tiring, written almost in 19th Century English, it was well worth the effort. Amazing how an accident of history could have place Roosevelt in the White House and allowed him to make major contributions to American life.

                  • Got sidetracked and read William Lind's Maneuver Warfare Handbook, and Adolf von Schell's Battle Leadership.

                    Lind's book not surprisingly discusses the ideas of maneuver warfare, and von Schell's book relates his experiences as a small unit commander during World War I in a vein similar to Rommel's Attacks. Von Schell wrote it while he was a visitor at the Infantry School at Benning in the early 30s.

                    I am still working on Clark's Barbarossa and have started Dupuy's Genius for War.

                        • I am reading "The Road To War" The origins of World War II..by Richard Overy and Andrew Wheatcroft and so far, it is a great read with alot of insight of the pre-war years.

                          • Up until now I refused to read or watch Cold Mountain cause I thought it was a romance. I refuse to read romances. My wife insisted I read this book,practically shoved it in my hands and said read this book. I now see she was right. I do like the story of Inman. I am just beginning it and it isn't half bad.
