    • Soon I am expecting Peter Englund's " The battle that shook Europe - Poltava and the birth of the Russian empire". Any reviews, comments or impressions?

      • Now I am reading the 3'rd volume of tactical studies prepared by the rotmistrz [ger. Rittmeister] of the 12'th uhlan regiment Mieczyslaw Biernacki, Actions of the Budionny Horse Army from 26 V to 20 VI 1920, Warsaw 1924.

        Great book, with lot's of useful maps, and OdB. Also great knowledge about the 'Bolshevik's' cavalry tactics.

        And afterwards I must say that at first large engagement, Polish troops of 13'th Infantry Division at Dziunkow defence position, beat nicely 11 Cavalry Division of the Horse Army.

              Please tell us what you thought when (if) you finish it. I read it awhile back and I had rather strong feelings at the time.

                        I don't want to influence you. Maybe your thoughts will be different than mine. I'll be more than willing to discuss it when you're done, though.

                          • I am currently re-reading Decision in the West by Albert Castel. I read it several years ago and I would like to brush up on my Atlanta Campaign knowledge.

                            • Another re-reading here as well while waiting on my latest orders of ACW books to arrive. (this might actually be a re-re-reading)
