  • Wow, to return this to a lighter, less grim note I've been reading "Uncompromising Honor" by David Weber.

      • Picked up the latest Bernard Cornwell's book about the Uhtred saga "War of the Wolf".

        As always, it was a quite interesting read. IMO it is possibly one of Cornwell's better writing - Great story.

            • ''The Gliders' by Alan Lloyd

              I neat book that I found in a used book store. I good read if you are curious about gliders use in WW2. The book focuses more on the British Glider Pilot Regiment in Western Europe, but does provide some coverage of German and American use of gliders, and about their use in Burma.

              The major flaw with the book is that sometimes the author jumps from one story to the next, in the same page, without a logical flow - Flying a Horsa glider over Normandy and then jumping without explanation to landing a Waco in Burma!!


              I also found time to read Chris Ryan's ''Strike Back''...

              Those who read my past critics know that I find Chris Ryan's novels quite disappointing as I feel the author sometimes does not do his homework (driving and fighting from a tank with a one-man crew, comes to mind), but Strike Back was a entertaining read. I was not going to read Ryan books anymore because of my past disappointment, but ''Strike Back'' was accumulating dust at home and figure I read it while waiting for my next Amazon order...Hmm! after reading Strike Back, I may give Ryan another chance as an author!

                  • I'm into the 7th book of James L. Nelson's novels of Viking Age (825 A.D.) Ireland. The battle descriptions, plot line, character's adventures, and smooth, fast narrative reminds me of Cornwell's "Sharpe's Rifles" series.

                    The first novel title is "Fin Gall" (Light Strangers) which is Gaelic for Norwegian vikings (Dubh Gall (Dark Strangers) is Danes). Recommend reading books in order based on character development and characters that come and stay, as well as the villains who come and go.

                    Great escape reading, can't put them down, and I'm losing sleep.

                    • I have started the series, but I have lost a bit of interest in these books. The first few were good, maybe I have read a poor one?
