                  Good "read" on audible book. Pretty brutal stuff.

                      • Just pulled this one out of the pile of books, only just started out but already promises to be a good read of an officer who did not seem to follow the normal conventions of the Japanese officer.

                            • The Assassins by Bernard Lewis. The author, a middle east expert, looks at the Assassin sect that grew out of the Ismailis in the late 12th century using early European and Arabic sources. Some interesting parallels between them and modern day suicide bombers and some myth busting.
