    I loved the Fort!

    After reading it I have a very dim view of Paul Revere!

    Interesting that Longfellow the author of the poem "Paul Revere's Ride mother is briefly in the novel as a young child! In the novel Longfellow's grandfather wanted to put Paul Revere on trial for his actions during the campaign!

      I've seen the first two episodes of "The Last Kingdom" on BBC America. So far so good.

      This is based on Bernard Cornwell's the Saxon Stories.

            I think a movie based on the Congo Crisis in the '60s based around the mercenaries of 5 Commando would be interesting. I'd also like to see either a mini-series or movie dealing with the Boxer Rebellion.

              Almost anything by Allan W. Eckert but especially A Sorrow In Our Heart: The Life of Tecumseh.

                  The Ten Thousand

                  Many ancient classics involving massive battles are possible now because of CGI.

                    Clear the Bridge!

                    Clear the Bridge!: The War Patrols of the U.S.S. Tang

                    by Richard O'Kane (Author)

                    This is his story and that of the USS Tang, one of the most successful submarines operating in the Pacific. O'Kane was one of a new breed of submarine skippers who traded caution for results with great success, but at huge risks. One of the most effective tactics was to take the surfaced submarine into the middle of Japanese convoys at night, attacking multiple ships and then escaping to the depths.

                    The action is heart stopping and explains why the Navy pulled some of the more conservative older skippers out of their boats and replaced them with men like this. But the story is much more than simply tactics and bravery above all expectations, it is a story about true leadership.

                              The real version, not the crap that was made already, right?
