        • I just got Climb to Conquer by Peter Shelton. It's a fun story so far, though the author needed to do some better research on WW2 light infantry.

          • The Ultimate Battle: Okinawa... by Bill Sloan

            in the middle of it...most excellent. I "read" mostly audio books lately as I can get more time to it while on the go or lying in bed...and audio books do not add to my clutter....can relisten easier than picking it off the bookshelf too.

            • Just finished Atkinson's The Day of Battle (excellent) and House to House which is about the Battle of Fallujah from the perspective of an Army Infantry squad leader who was nominated for the Medal of Honor for his actions there. Currently reading the Aubrey/Maturin novels by Patrick O'Brien. I'm on the eighth or ninth one (also excellent).

                  • I'm really burnt out on reading for a course on Literature of the English Restoration. I love English lit but this time period doesn't seem to catch my attention. So, I'm reading some fun stuff on the side and avoiding serious military history.

One shootout was pretty different (movie version and book version both cool but don't see why they made the change really). Couple minor differences here and there. Highly recommend both the movie and the book!

                          • I've just started reading 'The siege of Leningrad' by David Glantz. His knowlegde about east front is very unique.

                            • Reading Keith William Nolan's Sappers in the Wire, a minute-by-minute account of the devastating sapper attack that took place March 29, 1971 on FSB MARY ANN, defended by the grunts of 1/46 Inf who suffered 30 KIAs and 82 WIAs that night.

                              • I'm reading Bloody Roads South*. It's really a great book about the War Between the States. It's an organized collection of first-hand accounts, structured to provide a record from the witnesses of the Overland Campaign of 1864. Every page I find something and say, "I need to post this on ACG!" But I can't stop reading long enough to do it. Again, lots of revelations about the two armies that I had been unaware of.

                                It's so good that I have started reading for 20 minutes or so every morning before I go to work.

                                I got mine at a used book store (more like rescued). Go find it, buy it, and read it!



                                *As usual, I am reading several books simultaneously.
