    • War, by Sebastian Junger.
      You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace, after having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.

          Rightly earned. You can tell the author is a Washinton fan however he doesn't hesitate to present Washington warts and all. If you're looking for a breakdown of Washington's military campaigns look somewhere else. But if you're looking to get to know the man, again warts and all, look no further. This biography is a very good start. Ron Chernow is to be commended for bringing Washington to life.(for me anyway)

            I've yet to be disappointed by a Chernow biography. I'm more partial to his business profiles but his Hamilton bio was superb. I [lan on reading his Washington bio sometime in August.

                    Very light reading

                    Leaving for Crete tomorrow morning for two weeks.
                    Will be bringing the following with me to read on the beach

                    Maksim Kolomets, T-34 Khar'kov Epic



                    Sergei Kirsanov, T-34 from the ground up: Part I (tracks, road wheels, running gear and hull)



                    Should go well with a bottle or two of Cretan wine

                    • I just finished "Callsign Hades". It was written by a guy from Dublin who served in Afganistan in the British Army.
                      It is very well written and very honest (maybe too honest; he shouldn't have criticised his fellow soldiers).

                        I'm sure the beach babes will be interested in your books.

                        • I am reading "To Kill A Mockingbird" again ( I don't know how many times I have actually read it) but it is one of my all-time favorite books.

                                Aaaahhh, Homles. I love the originals. When I was a kid, I used to fantasize about Victorian London all the time. Those are stories I'll never tire of reading.
