        • I finally got my hands on The River War, by Winston Churchill....Kindle version. It's a delight and has prompted me to re-read concurrently Three Empires on the Nile.

                • Oath of Fealty by Elizabeth Moon.

                  Book one in the followup trilogy to The Deed of Paksenarrion.

                  Paks is one of my favorite series from back in the day. I had no idea this was out till I saw it at the local library.

                    • I'm a little over 100 pages into "Child 44" by Tom Rob Smith. So far I'm enjoying it very much.

                            I finished BATAAN: The March Of Death and IMO, a book that was hard to put down once started. It brings out alot of emotions though, anger, tears, heartache etc..

                            • Trying to work my way through The Sword and the Shield and The World Was Going Our Way, both my Christopher Andrew. Fascinating books but both rather dense and not exactly easy-to-read, which makes things tough on top of all of my regular academic reading for my college classes.

                              I'm also planning on buying some books on the French Foreign Legion soon, and trying to learn more about the FFL. Lots of good memoirs out there.

                              Also trying to catch up on some back issues of Foreign Affairs...

                                I've read both of those and they are tiny print and both books are very long. You'll learn a great deal though and I enjoyed both of them.
                                I haven't read "For the President's Eyes Only" by Christopher Andrew, but it looks very good and is on my to read list.
