    THIMAYA OF INDIA

    By Humphrey Evans

    Story of Gen Thimayya, One of first Indian's to attend Sandhurst, in post First world war years.

    It gives very good insight in the Indian Army of British Raj.

    Humphrey Evans worked closely with General Thimayya when he was writing the Korean Diary, and in this biographical book, has succeeded marvelously in bringing the Thimayya legend to life. A soldier�s fortune, the ethics, strategy and ideology of war, its psychological impact, and the historical events � are all reflected in General Thimayya�s illustrious career.

    This book is a fascinating and eminently readable account of the life of great soldier and fine man.

    Generally the Good British officers and men served in India are forgotten, but they loved the country and their occupation.

    some of the stories told in the book give us the insight the transformation that took place post 1920 to 1940's.

    If Hollywood did the movie they would probably make Che the victor, which was not the case.
    Whoever played Che would also win an Oscar.

    An entire movie was made about the Boxer Rebellion: 55 Days at Peking

    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 Ten Thousand

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