    • A fascinating take on pre-colonial America. Much like modern Thailand, the Iroquois were masters at playing the French and British against each other to (somewhat) maintain their own identity.
      All questions are valid, all answers are tentative.

        But I just can't memorise those things. A good book still.

        • Just finished "In the Name of Rome: The Men Who Won The Roman Empire" by Adrian Goldsworthy.

          It's a profile of Romes greatest generals from the Republic to the Empire.

            • "The Line Upon A Wind: The Great War at Sea 1793-1815 by Noel Mostert

              One more comprehensive study of the Naval dimension of the Napoleonic War s including the War of 1812.

              From the jacket flap: "The thrilling story of Britain's Death-Struggle with Revolutionary France, where-in Napoleon is checkmated by Nelson's brilliant naval exploits."

              Not exactly leading me to expect fair and balanced but then I am an anglophile anyway.

              • This is probably the best Book on Diem that has been written in English. The author used a lot of sources that you just don't find in other works on Diem and Nhu or that period.

                    • Reading 'The longest day' for perhaps the third or fourth time! The style is so readable and the various facts put me straight back there every time!!If you have only seen the film, read the book it puts it in an even clearer light! (By Cornelious Ryan.)

                        Great book,it is the first book I read dealing with Rome. I still haven't finished the series yey,but the first three books are great.
                        If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon

                            No sarcasm intended but promise me that they do not act like they were the only ones inthe war and I will read it by all means.

                                Yes, I suppose so. It is what you are noted for anyway! Cheers.
