  • This morning I received a DVD containing pdf versions of all the Command Histories of the Military Assistance Command Vietnam (MACV) from 1964 to 1973 (had only 1967-1968 til then), it contains nearly 10,000 pages of unclassified documents covering about every aspects of the US involvement in Vietnam (ground, air and naval operations, pacification, planning, enemy activities etc...) and representing perhaps the most extensive resource about the war I ever possessed and certainly months of reading

    • Wow Boonie, looks very interesting!!! Hope you have fun reading it all.

      I finished IRON ARM last night....loved every page of it, though most people would probably consider some of it a little boring and bland.

      • - Miscellaneous articles by Dr. John Rao. http://jcrao.freeshell.org/

        - PSAT prep book (I'm can't wait to take it! )

        - The Man with the Iron Heart, new historical fiction book by Harry Turtledove on WWII.



        Looks like it'll be a good, somewhat light read, compared to what I normally read...

          • This is a fascinating book and I strongly recommend it if you are interested in the GWOT.

            • Looks neat Miss.Saigon.

              So far The Man with the Iron Heart has been pretty good......the author does a great yet subtle job of drawing parallels between a post-WWII occupation of Germany by the Allies that is highly contested by fanatical Werewolf partisans with the current struggles in Iraq and Afghanistan.

                • Shattered Sword: The Untold Story of the Battle of Midway by Jonathan Parshall & Anthony Tully. I actually helped the authors with the book; I'm mentioned in the acknowledgements under the title "1st Lieutenant Matthew R. Jones of the U.S. Army", even though I'm not in the military (although I dearly wish I was).

                      I actually read a book about the werewolves once. If I recall they pulled off on successful attack in Aachen but were then a spent force.

                      • Finished The War Managers this evening. Good reading for how the US generals felt about the conflict in Vietnam.

                                Sitting on the shelf waiting to be read along with The Last Valley. Then it will be time to break out the ATO game on the subject.
