I've been rereading A Bridge Too Far. Its a history of Operation Market-Garden during WWII. Really a great read, even though it is a history book Cornelius Ryan's writing style makes it an enjoyable read sort of like a historical novel.

Yeah, that's why I really enjoy Ambrose. He makes it so much more interesting than a textbook.

Did you read his book Band of Brothers? I really liked that one, you could also really see his influence in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers (where I think he was a historical consultant). I've still got to read his book on D-Day though, I've had it for the longest time but have never got around to reading it.

Yeah, I read Band of Brothers. Saw the whole TV series, too. And D-Day was really good. Quite the long read, but very good. I think my favorite is still Citizen Soldiers, though. Although Pegasus Bridge was really good, too. So if you're worried about time constraints, I'd go with Pegasus Bridge. Smile

Thanks for the recommendations! I'll have to look into all those books (it'll give me something to do over winter break!). Because I love aviation I read his book The Wild Blue. Its a good nice short read too.

I'm not too worried about long reads. Its not like its a novel where (like say Order 66) where you just have to keep reading to find out what happens next. Since its a history book if I get desperate to find out what will happen next in a battle I can just "cheat" and read an encyclopedia entry and then just enjoy the rest of the book when I have the time. Very Happy

Currently reading Hidden Empire, Book 1 of the Saga of Seven Suns by Kevin J Anderson. only just started it so can't say too much, but its started well. From all I've heard it sounds like a good series.

Just finished reading the Thraxas novels (forget the author), which are fantasy comedy books, very cool.

Reading Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice. The book the movie was based off of. So far it's pretty good. I might end up delving deeper into this series if it finishes well.

Reading the Demas Revelation. It's by Shane Johnson, my favorite author ever. He's only ever written five books, but I have them all and love them all. He tends to write Christian horror, which may sound strange, but I love it. I love horror/scary stuff, but it's usually used in a fashion I don't agree with. However, Johnson uses it in a sense by using demons/spiritual warfare that makes it okay, and I absolutely love the way he does it. I know that sounds really confusing/strange, but it's hard to explain.

Anyway, The Demas Revelation was not horror related, but it was excellent nonetheless. Smile

I'm reading "Star Strike - Book One from the Inheritance Trilogy" by Ian Douglas.

Book is about the US Marine Corps (and the human race in general) in the far off future. This is a series of books that when all is said and done, will be nine books total. To me this is great series and highly enjoyable.

You need to start with his first book "The Heritage Trilogy - Semper Mars." This book kicks off the whole 9 book series. It's then followed by "Luna Marine" and "Europa Strike."

If you want to know the titles of the rest of the series, let me know and I'll list them here.

Good Night Smile
