        • I've been on a big Age of Sail rampage. I finished the O'Brien Aubrey/Maturin series and the Lambdin Lewrie series, and I'm 1/2 way thru the Kent Bolitho series. Stockwin's Kydd series is next on my list. So far I've enjoyed them all, but I think I like the sometimes R-rated Alan Lewrie stories the best.

            Thom's "Panther in the Sky" about Tecumseh, and "Follow the River" about Mary Draper Ingles capture and escape aren't bad reads either.

                  One question though, the cover has as a subtitle, "The End Of The Imperial Japanese Empire". Isn't that a little redundant?
                  Excellent book. After reading this book there should be no doubts that the U.S. took the right course in dropping atomic weapons.

                    My ancestor was Clark's chief scout on two of his campaigns. Clark was in many ways a self promoting land speculator who died pennyless........

                      • I am reading The Tristan Betrayal by Robert Ludlum and so far tis a pretty good read. It centers around Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union right after the signing of the Nazi-Soviet Non-Agression Pact
