  • I am currently reading "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" (actually I am listening to it on Audible) for the third time. It is an amazing achievement by William Shirer and still the best book on the subject, in my opinion. I first read it in high school. Excuse me for saying this, but some of the stuff in the book reminds me of America today.

                  • Great book as long as you remember it's a narrative.

                          Haven't gotten very far yet. But generally - not to oversimplify a very complex person, Guevara or Pineiro. The back cover quotes Pineiro, "To try to reduce Che to a mere cultural symbol is a vulgar oversimplification..."

                          I picked up a bunch of books because the embargo makes them difficult to find. They tend to be published in Australia for the Cuban tourist market. I'm assuming it's for the tourist market because I can't see a Cuban national spending a month's pay on a book.

                          • I'm following up a +1,000 pager (The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich) with another one. This will be my third time reading John Toland's The Rising Sun. I always preferred the Pacific Theater to the ETO.
