        Is anyone else interested in cartography? I enjoy maps quite a bit and have a fair collection of digital maps with me. If anyone else has an interest, let me know.

          You are a mean person.

          Here I am in the desert, eating the best of British cuisine (which is not as bad as their reputation) and you're making me hungry for Rumpsteak mit Kraeuterbutter.

          When you die, I will find your grave, dig it up, and pee on your casket.

            More info on book reviews and biographies....are you primarily interested, as I assume, in bios and reviews from the same eras as you listed?

                  Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

                        Asian Military History.

                        Also if possible...

                        Use of deception tactics and strategy in battles through the ages, by any force, from simple to the sophisticated, other than that of the Trojan horse.

                        Have read up on FM90-2 but want more stuff and examples, if you please. Thanx.

                        And also anything to do with combat logistics through the ages.

                          Isn't there anyone who wants any easy stuff?

                          First biographies are coming out. Will have more tomorrow, along with info on maps and whatever I can find and time allows.

                            I'm always trying to justify to my wife why I have 7-8 Atlases, she just doesn't get their historical importance.
