    • Battle of Surigao Strait by Anthony P. Tully. Very good, detailed but not boring.

      • The Silent Attack: The Fallschirmjäger capture the bridges of Veldwezelt, Vroenhoven and Kanne 1940

          For those taking courses on Psychology, this is good read plus the fact that the tales were very interesting. I am half-way through.
          Every week you come with a new name but you always use the same posting methods. However some of the books you link are very interesting. I clicked on your link and i think I will check my local libraries to see if any of them have that book.

              It takes a good polygrapher to read through DI's.

              • Just received this book and it looks like a good read on Hungarian Forces in WW2. The author, Peter Mujzer, has a Facebook page for those interested in ordering but I notice it is also available here:

                  • Just finished 'Seven Troop', 'Baptism of Fire' and 'Freefall'... never thought books about the SAS would be so sad.

                    The long toll of the brave
                    Is not lost in darkness
                    Over the fruitful earth
                    And athwart the seas
                    Hath passed the light of noble deeds
                    Unquenchable forever.

                      • 'In the line of Fire' by Philip McCutchan

                        Currently reading 'In the line of Fire' by Philip McCutchan!

                        Naval thriller set in 1941, and it's great so far!
                        If any one has read it or is going to let me know what you think, majority of the reviews on Amazon are quite promising so I've got high hopes
