  • First Muslim



    The First Muslim, The Story of Muhammad by Lesley Hazleton.

    So far I find it a very unbiased (no hidden agenda pro or contra), well researched and thrillingly told story

    • Reading the backstory to Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, Earth Unaware. A very good book. I am gonna look for the next in this trilogy? Earth Afire. Anyone interested in the first contact with the Formics went down should read it. I guess theres a comic book series to go along with it.

      Also read the The Art of Loving, by Erich Fromm. It's so simple yet so hard to really love someone and yourself on a mature and deeper level than most of us don't realize we can.

        • We have 3 dachshunds ourselves so this really hits home.

          Funny, touching and sad and extremely well-written story about how 3 dogs help a man and his family cope with everyday life. Can't recommend it enough.

              The miracle at Midway (can't remember the author, but the worst read of the lot)
              The Unknown Battle of Midway: The Destruction of the American Torpedo Squadrons By Alvin Kerna
              very good read it shows how the American planes and torpedoes were outclassed by the Japanese weapons of that time

              Last night I started Shattered Sword by Parshall
              this one is from the Japanese perspective

                      • Operation Salam book

                        Kuno Gross and his team have done a number of extremely well researched and produced books on the "deep desert" operations of WW2.

                        Highly recommended for the appendices alone!

                          • Another dog story for me. A novel written from the dog's viewpoint. Very good book. Gotta take a break from war, soldiers, and history every now and then.
