        • I'll make sure to check back in. I'm a few chapters in and he's breezing through; It's obviously weighted towards the modern era.

            • I'm reading a Christmas present from one of my sons - 'The Hardest Day' : The Battle of Britain, 18 August 1940 [author, Alfred Price.]

              Contains a lot of detailed, particular and often personal accounts and experiences - on both sides.

                    I have learned to appreciate anything Hanson choses to write about even though I do not always agree with what he states.
                    I wonder if this one will be another chip off the block.

                                I just picked that up. George RR Martin was highly complimentary of the book. Looking forward to reading it.
