    I got tired of being asked if I had read Panzer Commander by Col Hans von Luck


    I found a copy and reading it this week. I understand that it is pretty good.

    I am reading Tempest Over Texas by Donald Frazier. It is the fourth volume in his Louisiana Quadrille.

    Zbigniew Herbert's Barbarian in a Garden. The book jacket notes "In these ten essays Poland's finest living poet reflects on the art, architecture and history of Western Europe." ... 'Our lives pass amidst things,' Herbert has said, 'and that is why we ought to associate with them. I fight dust--the element that destroys objects.'

    There's been a flurry of Northwest Passage books since the re-discovery of Erebus and Terror. As a Canadian, they're almost required reading. So far, this an enjoyable read. It also tries to tie together all the various exploratory efforts of the indigenous peoples, Dutch, British, Inuit, and others into one overview.

    I'm just finishing up this book:


    At the moment, it's my "Book of the Year 2020". Meticulously researched, tons of information clearly presented in a balanced manner with areas of uncertainty clearly noted. Engaging, shocking, depressing, informative all that the same time. The authors go out of their way to defend the benefits of free markets but, even so, this is probably a book to avoid if you believe unfettered, free markets are the answer to all problems.

    I'm finishing up Suez by Keith Kyle. Sitting next on the pile is Twilight of the Gods, the finishing volume of Ian Toll's trilogy of the Pacific war. I couldn't wait for the softcover, so I splurged for the hardback. I know it was worthwhile.

    Reading C.S. Forester's Gold From Crete, a collection of fictional short stories about WWII. I'm studying his narrative form--would like to use it in a historical work.

    Keeping with the thread subject of what you are currently reading, the COVID 19 thing and my retirement are providing me more time to read books - Perhaps a bit away from my normal military reading and more in the general reading selection.

    Just started: The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes

    But keeping with the military theme, I am also reading a book that as been on my shelves of books to read when I find time (I do now!): How to Make War by James Dunnigan.

    Content delated as it wasn't related directly to the thread topic but adjunct opinion concerning possible changes to the OTL. As such the post would have been better served either in WW1 or Alternate history sections. Best Andy H
