      • I finally got ahold of Inferno by Max Hastings. Entertaining, insightful and fascinating approach to wrapping up his books on WW2.

        An excerpt from Lev Grossman's review in Time Entertainment is appropriate....Nov. 9, 2011 ---

        It Sucked to Go Through World War II. Inferno Will Remind You Why.

        Thereís no point in trying to summarize Inferno, because itís a book written against summaries. Itís an anti-summary.

        The author of Inferno is the journalist and military historian Max Hastings, and its full title is Inferno: The World at War, 1939-1945, though neither of those facts tells you much about whatís special about it.

          • I'm reading 3 books at the moment. My son stole Black Echo by Michael Connelly and I thought I'd lost it,I wasn't done reading it. I'm reading From Sea To Shining Sea by James Alexander Thom(I HIGHLY) recommend his books. And a biography of Paul Nicholas,the British actor/singer/entertainer it is an interesting book.
