            • Just finished Marines in the Garden of Eden, by Richard Lowry. Great account of the fighting in Nasiriyah.

                    • Now Reading World War Z by Max Brooks after a plug by Overseer. About half way through and it has been very good at addressing end-of-the-world type stuff.

                        • 'The Great War' by Les Carlyon.
                          History of Australian forces on the Western Front 1916-1918.
                          Les is the editor of 'The Age' which is the high brow newspaper in my home city and is the local 'Gallipoli' authority.
                          I'm into chapter three. It's written in a very 'Aussie' style and I'm enjoying it so far. Don't know much about WW1 other than the Gallipoli campaign which is part of the national psyche...we learn about this in primary school.

                            It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

                                That's on my list for after I take the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test) in the spring. If you are hungry for more, try Les' Gallipoli. I've read four books on the subject and his is by far the most engaging.
