    • My sister recommended "A Test of Wills" by Charles Todd about a WWI vet who works for Scotland Yard who investigates a murder. He experiences many past events of WWI and it affects his sanity. This was one of the best mysteries I've read and I really enjoyed it.

                  • ^ Looking forward to that

                    Current;y finishing another reading of F.C. Selous' Travel and Adventure, but I have on order a Sir Richard Francis Burton biography.
                    Still going back to Hew Strachan's European Armies and the Conduct of War now and then too, and recently dug out this little gem;

                    The content is surprising; although it does deal with some of the usual Five-Rings-esque stuff, there's even Samurai texts on strategy and generalship - mostly seemingly inspired by Zhuge Liangs 'way of the general'-, and to my great surprise, Seapower Theory!

                      • Picked up a book entitled "Yanakee Air Pirates" by a former B-52 pilot C. K. McCusker, written in collaboration with COL Robert G. Certain, USAF (Ret)

                        The book is a hilarious, gripping, technically and socially correct look at the Vietnam air war from the seat of a B-52 Bombardier whose 'crewdog' name was Spike. Having been on the ground myself, I have always avoided accounts or novels that looked at the war from any other perspective, despite the fact that my brother was a FAC there, before he transferred to Okinawa to fly KC-135 tankers. Yankee Air Pirates was definitely a book to open my eyes. OK, so after the mission they were back to cold beer, or more accurately, cool Black Russians and hot women. But considering the war they were fighting, I no longer begrudge them a single moment. As for those who snivel and cry about the civilians who (unfortunately) died in some of those raids, Yankee Air Pirates will give them an appreciation for exactly why even the most carefully plotted targets could end up a miss. Yes, dodging SAMs and AAA can throw bombers off specifically selected military targets. Not that they'll ever read it. But for anyone else interested in what war from a B-52 looked like during the Linebacker offensives, Yankee Air Pirates is your book. Published by Deeds Press, a small press out of Goergia. THe book has a website at www.yankeeairpirates.com
