      • After reading historical fiction for about the last 6 months I'm going for a change of pace with Fire in the Sky: The Air War in the South Pacific by Eric Bergerud. It is extensive and well written.

            Nice one I really liked the Spy - We don't have enough Isaac Bell type heroes these days.

            • Just finished Grant and Sherman: The Friendship that Won the Civil War by Charles Bracelen Flood

              That very good book got me interested in Mrs. Grantís story. Fortunately my library had The General's Wife; the Life of Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant by Ishbel Ross so I am just starting it out.

                The Spy was the one that got me hooked. I'm going to read "The Thief" next.

                • In terms of historical literature, World War I: The African Front by Edward Paice. It's good in the limited scope that the author clearly intended, but I would have liked it better if it had gone into more detail regarding military action outside of the East-African theater. Lettow-Vorbeck is cool and all, but as it is it's not so much about The African Front but a front of The African Front.

                  In terms of fiction, I've been reading The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. My first thought upon reading it was that it was basically just a less interesting version of Antic Hay by Aldous Huxley, but once they get to Spain it starts panning out. It's not my favorite Hemingway book, but I think I enjoyed it for what it was.

                  • When I went with my cousin the other day, I stopped in a new library for me, and bought a passel of Ken Follett novels, and one I can't wait to dig into(yeah, all large print) The Machiavelli Covenant by Allan Folsom.

                    • I am currently reading volume three of the trilogy about Sir Winston Churchill "The Last Lion Defender of the Realm" It is one great book and a really well researched book. I've waited a long time to read it.

                                Is that the "condensed" version of "Crucible Of War" by him? About the French And Indian War? If it is, you won't be disappointed. "Crucible Of War"
                                is one of the best history books I've ever read no matter the time period. Fred Anderson knows his sh!t!
