  • Just finished "Ostfront 1944: The German Defensive Battles On The Russian Front 1944" Alex Buchner. The author was a German soldier in WWII. Good read.
    Also finished "Hitler's Police Battalions" by Edward B. Westermann. Excellent book shows how instilled with the SS "ethic" these police units were and how instrumental they were in waging a brutal racial war in Poland and Russia.

    • I just got an autographed copy of Ann Coulter's new book, GUILTY, and started reading it this morning. It's excellent -- but that's what I expected from her.

      • I'm finally getting Hitler's War by David Irving more in-depth, I must say it's a fancsinating and breathtaking book.

          You do know that most of that book has been proven to be somewhat factually challenged? And Irving has been denounced as a Holocaust denier? Other than that, it does move along pretty well.

          Don't feel bad about it though, I have that book in my library too.

            Yeah I know that Irving is Holocaust denier, and the contraversy surrounding his books. However still Hitler's War has won critial acclam from many prominent military historians.

            However one of the biggest issues with Irving should be the prices of his books!

                Rereading a thread right here at ACG and there's a wealth of information in it. If you've got the time, I would highly recommend it.

                • I am reading a nifty rather small softback book written by two British authors called: SNIPERS. It goes through famous individual sniping incidents, and also some more wide scale examples from ww1, ww2, Vietnam ect...

                  It's a very interesting nifty little book, I recommend it.

                            • Cold war research

                              For a chilling account of cold war skulduggery try The Sword and the Shield: The Mitrokhin Archive and the Secret History of the KGB.

                              Excellent book. Very informative. It also explains why our universities are so screwed up.
