            It's good but not GREAT like Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors is.

            • Good book.



              One question though, the cover has as a subtitle, "The End Of The Imperial Japanese Empire". Isn't that a little redundant?

              • Just finished Richard B. Frank's "Guadalcanal" (highly recommend! Great read - great detail - solid analysis and commentary)

                Starting Shelby L. Stanton's "America's Tenth Legion: X Corps in Korea, 1950"

                  Kinda funny because there's also a movie called Downfall, but it's about the last days of the Third Reich. It's also been butchered so much:

                    • The Glider Gang



                      Publication Date: 1977
                      Describes the glider missions in European airborne operations during World War II and the exploits of the pilots who participated in them.For warbird enthusiasts, this book definitely entertains with a factual account of the use of both American (Waco GC-4) and British troop and equipment bearing gliders (Horsa and Hamilcar).

                        • Panzer Gunner by Bruno Friezen

                          It's pretty good, if a bit badly written in parts. It's available for free at the moment on Kindle so if anyone is interested in downloading it, now is the time

                          • Finished Neptune's Inferno, very good read.
                            Currently reading a free download of Last of the Mohicans on my Android phone. First time reading a full length book in this format.
